We have never lived in the city before moving to Cochabamba. Our kids have had to get creative in a small yard keeping themselves busy. I wanted to feature just a few things the kids have created over the past few months.
Clara created a beautiful wreath for Ruth's head out of the various plants around our yard.

The girls also had fun washing the baby clothes by hand one day! Creative and helpful!!

Clancy put together this model airplane that he found at Hipermaxi, a local grocery store. He painted it bright colors and rigged up a way to fly it on yarn that he strung up in the living room.

One day the boys were especially bored, so Rudi took them down to the local art supply store and bought them these big sheets of styrofoam. They made airplanes out of the styrofoam, large and small. This one below is the largest they made. It flew like a dream! The only bad part was the styrofoam all over the yard for days!

Rudi also has the boys do some minor repairs on the car, like changing tires and such!
Myles has gotten really good at his leather art. Below is something he made for Rudi's birthday.

|Myles amazing leather art up close!|
For awhile the boys were into digging holes. A great way to burn off energy... a little hazardous for walking around the yard, though!!!
|If all else fails...dig a hole in the yard!|
