Pre-Trip Crafting – Little Bears

Penny & Lincoln

Penny & Lincoln

As the trip approaches, leaving the kids for an extended period of time is really taking it’s toll on us. They are getting a lot more hugs and smooches than usual, and that is saying something.

A couple of years ago, at a super nerdy craft night, my good friend Amy reminded me that sculpey clay was a fun thing to play around with. That night, I made a Lincoln statue for John, which was received with great delight.

We decided that we needed a little sculpture of Lincoln and Penny to accompany us on the trip. It will probably be the most protected thing we carry around with us…

Not as good as the real thing, but it will do in a pinch.

Expect to see Lincoln and Penny crop up in our pictures from time to time. We’ve already had too much fun with the guide books:
