Long day on Saturday but as always it was wonderful to go to the Open House at Laurentian and to bring Ben home. Today my post is not set up to brag, but to share with family and those of you who are interested what Ben has been up to
He is part of what will be the first graduating class of the School of Architecture at Laurentian University. The classroom is Francophone meaning that many of his lectures are delivered in french, the program has direct ties to the First Nations Aboriginal and much of the curriculum is focused on contemporary Aboriginal cultures. Many of his lectures and instruction are from First Nations Elders. This just puts perspective on why the students are creating the projects that they do.
A saw horse created without using any nails or screws. Proud mama moment that Ben's design received top mark in the class using square wooden pegs.
Canoe #1: Birch Bark (yes actually made of birch bark)
Canoe #2: Carbon Fibre (made of fabrics)
Students also each made their own paddles out of carbon fibre (seen in top photo)
Ben and Caelan, adorable together.
So proud of both of them and all the hard work they put into building their canoes!
What I did notice is that Ben has lost weight and tired. Term 1 is over and he is off for three weeks--so time for some home cooking and sleep. Thanks for sticking through this.
