Tomorrow my daughter comes home. Its been the longest 5 weeks of my life! I am excited to hear about her experience with Northwest youth corp. I am certain this will be something she never forgets. I am so VERY proud of her for completing the work program. I could never have done that at 17. Any age for that matter... can you imagine sleeping in tents on the ground and getting up and clearing brush or building bridges... for 5 weeks??? That is what she has been doing. Curious as to what she will do with her first big paycheck. Bet it burns all the way to the bank!

Hi Janell~
Glad to hear that you'll have your daughter home soon and that's an impressive job she finished. I'm sure it was a great learning experience and it's nice that someone so young accomplished it. Way to go! I need to check your blog more often, great posts. I LOVE your felted figures! Sounds like it was a fun class.
