    1. Hi Jody,

      Thank you so much for your kind words. They mean a lot especially coming from someone who is from there! I have been having a blast creating this unit study. It is loads of work, but we are learning a lot.

      Thank you for stopping by. I popped over to your blog (which I love by the way!) and landed on your amazing craft idea! WOW! I sure could use something like that to organize all my craft doodads.


    1. Hi Jody,

      I have never been past Alberta. One of my dreams is to actually drive all the way across Canada. I am really enjoying learning about all of these interesting places.
