Meeting Sixteen

Sadly, meeting 16 was our last in regards to our journey book, 5 Flowers, 4 Stories, 3 Cheers For Animals!  As a culmination of everything we have learned, our girls made a mural about their journey.  We've learned about caring for animals, different animal habitats and how some of them eat, and so much more I can't even remember off the top of my head.  Once the girls finished and we took a step back, it all started to sink in.  You could see the light bulbs go off in their heads.

Remember our bird bath that we did way back in October?  This spring, that will be our final project from our journey.  The parks and rec department in our county is graciously allowing us to put in front out the county rec center.  They recently cut down an old tree, so we will have the perfect spot for it.  A few weeks before we do that, we're going to tie in a few of our petals into this project.  We're going to be making terrariums with recycled plastic bottles to plant flower seeds.  By the time we go to place the bird bath, the flowers will be blooming, or almost blooming, so that we can plant them around the bird bath.

For us, the adults, there was a touch of melancholy knowing that we had finished our journey, but the girls were just excited to be doing a big project like this!
