We are just about done our end-of-the-school-year craziness - projects, tests and open houses.
Along with all fourth graders in California, Tyler learned about the missions this year. We went to the San Miguel mission over spring break, and he made a scrapbook about it for his mission project.
It rained a ton over spring break, but we managed to find a nice day to go. Kristen met us there with her four youngest kids.
Tyler did an awesome job on his scrapbook. He had the idea of painting the paper light brown to make it look old.
Tyler lost his camera about 6 months ago, and then Noah found it in the couch cushions while he was here. Tyler has been taking pictures & video constantly ever since.
I love looking at really old stuff and imagining what life was like back then. I think that's one reason I like to go there so much.
This is one of Tyler's favorite pictures - the homemade candles with the cracked wall. Looks like Halloween.
There are so many cool picture places there. This is way more interesting to me than building a model of a mission, which is what most of the kids in his class did. Good choice, Tyler!
