"Hand"some Butterfly

Four hands together make a BUTTERFLY!

This colorful paper creation was made by a day camper at the St. Edmund Learning Center in Selma. Sponsored by Edmundite Missions, the center is working with dozens of children each afternoon for the five-week summer session. Arts and crafts are a favorite activity, but they also get to learn computer skills, read books just for fun, play games and enjoy a handbell choir concert from a group all the way from Illinois...not to mention last week's entertaining and educational McWane Science Center demonstration.

Back to the butterfly...I love the look on this one's face, and of course I must add that Selma is the Butterfly Capital of Alabama. Not only that, butterflies will soon land all over historic downtown in the form of sculptures that are painted and decorated by local artists. It's known as The Butterfly Project. The sculptures will be unveiled October 10 just before the Alabama Tale Tellin' Festival and Riverfront Market Day weekend. They'll be up for sightseeing until Thanksgiving. Come see!

This is a clever idea that worked.

Patty and I will be celebrating 53 years of marriage on July 12th. Think of it as a long-term relationship.

I have invited bloggers to offer suggestions on a gift for me to give Patty and the list would not be complete without your ideas.
