Tepee’s, Columbus, and the death of a camera

My dear friends, I have some bad news today… unfortunately, we are mourning the loss of my dearly beloved camera. This is a sad day in the history of the blog…instead of my usual colorful picture blog, I’ll just have to share what photos I did take before “the incident” and just list what’s in boxes for tomorrow. Let’s take a brief pause in remembrance…………………………….

Anyway…here we are on day 2 of our Native American Village. Today we made Tepee’s, we also put a couple fire pits and one canoe in our village.

Okay, so we’re a week late on making the Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria, but better late than never right? After making the boats, we took them up to the bathtub to sail them. I would have loved to share pictures of this event, but sadly…let’s pause in remembrance of the camera…..


Unlike the actual event in history, OUR Santa Maria was the only boat that actually made it across the tub to safety. The other’s were too top heavy, falling into the water and sinking. No one aboard made it, not even the pirate that was apparently on the Pinta (See boat on left).

We’ll be doing this tomorrow, I found a fun printable from here. They’ll stock their bags as we read through the story. I got the idea off of this blog, she has tons of info, thanks Erin!
