World Thinking Day 2012

Happy World Thinking Day!

This year, we visited a shop that sells natural and sustainably grown fibers. It was interesting to see the differences in materials. We were surprised to discover that bamboo is made into a fiber and can be quite soft.

Tonight we went to the Square Dancing program sponsored by our council. It was a lot of fun! There were a lot of people there. We had to listen carefully to follow what the caller was saying. They had awesome snacks!
