Every 4th grader gets to build a replica of a California Mission. Hers was Mission Inez in Solvang California. She was so excited. Most parents are the ones who gets stuck making this project but not us. From day 1, Emerson was determined to do this project herself. She didn't even want us to buy the kit from the craft store. She wanted to make it from scratch. I only cut out the shape of the mission and she did the rest. She even made headstones for the graveyard including spiderwebs made from the glue gun and trees that she put together with branches from our trees and gluing moss and an 18 page report about her mission. She is so creative and she was so pleased with the outcome of her mission.
