Colorado Newspaper

In late August - early September 2004, our family had the glorious opportunity of traveling to Colorado. We spent several days in "heaven", and after we returned home we decided that it would be a great idea to create a "newspaper" of sorts. We Incorporated it into school, using this as a part of our IEW (Institute for Excellence in Writing) writing class. We all had such a fun time reminiscing and writing!

Each child was assigned 2-3 articles they had to write on an assigned topic (e.g. Horn Creek, Como, Biking, etc.), and then we had to write it and we would add the articles to our paper.

Once the paper was finished we would pass it along to family & friends... well here we are 3 years later and we are just getting around to "editing" it, as in layout and design, getting it prepared for printing, and then hand out. The paper has pictures included throughout, so you can "see" what activities we participated in! It was the best family vacation I've ever had, and so refreshing and beautiful!!!

Once it is finished, hopefully we can post some, if not all of it here on the blog. Stay tuned...
