Weaving Lessons

We went to a festival this weekend that featured a booth of items created and sold by Guatemalan artists.  It was really fun to meet them and talk to them a bit.  Jack wore his Guatemala soccer team jersey which was a big hit.  There were two women there doing backstrap weaving.  EJ has seen this process in several of her books, but it is truly amazing to watch the women work (and I think she could have watched all day long).  We had a bit of a language barrier, but one of the women gave EJ the job of winding some of the thread into a ball.  Liv "helped" EJ by holding the thread too.  They loved it!

We did some shopping as well and the kids picked out some great things.  It's not pictured here, but my awesome husband also purchased a necklace I had been considering and surprised me with it last night.  Yay for me!
