Monday Morning Star Count - 123

This week, I completed 15 more flowers for a total of 123.

Now I need to combine flowers to free up some paper hexagons so I can make more flowers!

The Travelers Have Returned

Ted and his five university students returned to Hokkaido Friday night and I was at the airport to welcome them home.  When I asked them what was their favorite thing about their trip to America, they said everything, they couldn’t choose.

While in North Carolina they visited the NC Natural Sciences Museum, sailed and canoed on Lake Johnson, shopped at REI for outdoor gear, shopped at the NC Farmers’ Market, visited the US National Whitewater Center (rock climbing, river rafting, ropes course, zip line), visited the Nantahala Outdoor Center (rafting and kayaking), camped at Nantahala National Forest -Tsali Campground and Pisgah National Forest, rock climbed at the Chimneys in Linville Gorge Wilderness, visited Grandfather Mountain, visited the farm of Ted’s friends where they rode mules and had a cookout, visited NC State University and climbed on the indoor climbing wall, practiced their English speaking skills, and made memories that will last a lifetime.
