The closest to Normal (Illinois) that I've ever been.

Saturday, February 16, 2008


Sam chose to do his class project on Ernest Hemingway, who apparently has ties to Illinois. He worked really hard on this puppet of Papa Hemingway. I helped him with the hat, and Danny and I gave him suggestions about the structure, but he did everything else. Hemingway is carrying The Old Man and the Sea.

I didn't know about this assignment in advance, but luckily, I have a vast stockpile of craft supplies. When the Rubidoux JoAnn Fabrics across the street closed down and everything was 70% off, I went nuts and bought a little of anything that I could imagine using. I'm glad that we didn't get rid of all that crap when we moved.

It's moments like these that justify pack-rattiness. Good job, Ma!
