The world...

We are doing stuyding wihth the kids who have stayed, but we wanted to do something more fun we made a globe. I (Katie) paper-mached a balloon with the younger kids. We used the scraps left over from the end of term celebration (can't waste paper!)

Once that was dry (a few days) Curtis helped the older boys paint it blue, then they each cut out a it it!

In the first picture I am helping the white dress is Mary, and with his back to the camera is Benjamen (day-student). His mom works for us, so he has been studying with us also.

In the second picture the boys are holding their finished globle...they are all posing for the picture :) In the red is Nelson, to the left in the blue is Layson, behind him in the black is Danny, and next to him inthe white is Samuel.

The last picture is the boys painting the globe and studying the map to decide how to best cut the countries.

They did a wonderful job on this project, and I think they had a lot of fun doing it as well...


  1. Very cool! What a fun photo-op-ed piece! Very creative!! You two continue to amaze me. :)

  2. Hi, Curtis, take some close up photos of Katie, you can send to my email address or post them too. Then have Katie do the same of you. The girls want to see you closer up! As well as the rest of us. Then we can print it in 4x6 to have. Waiting to see how Katie's hair is growing!!!
