Lindsay’s culmination project for 2nd quarter at SGS was to work in a team and create a video documentary of an culture in our city. Lindsay’s group chose the Scandinavian heritage of Ballard. The team was completely responsible for finding the interviewees, setting up the interviews, asking the questions, filming, editing, producing and presenting to the rest of the class and their parents. Well done Lindsay and team!
For Lindsay’s 12th birthday, we spent a great weekend at Dabob Bay on a camp spot owned by some other parents at West Woodland Elementary school. The property had an almost finished bunk house, picnic table, composting toilet, running water and a shed – it was lovely. Lindsay invited here closest friends from school and the neighborhood. Jackson brought his buddy Findley while Michelle and I brought my mom :-). The weather was perfect, the girls were awesome, Jackson & Findley had a blast while Michelle, Barbara and I had a blast getting to know Lindsay’s school pals better.
The weekend was pretty jammed packed with meals, clamming, swimming in the bay, swinging on the rope swing, swinging on the hammock, deep conversations, playing with dogs and fire building. Tess has some pictures of the clam digging and mud fight so we’ll post those when we get them, otherwise – enjoy!
We spent a great weekend with the Murray’s at their new cabin in Leavenworth and picked up Lindsay’s new puppy on the way home. We worked with a breeder in Lake Forest Park (also named Lucy!) and we really liked her. When we pulled into the breeder’s house Sally and Ivy Watkins were there – they are getting a puppy from a different litter from the same breeder. Lucy is a sweet black lab who loves Lindsay very much. She is very cute and cuddly and ALL puppy!
Hi, I just posted the shortened version of Lindsay’s story that she presented at Beneroya Hall on May 22nd. Click here to read the story. I’ll add the video when I figure out how to get it from my video camera to the web 🙂
