School's Out: final project

I meant to post pix of the girl's final big project of the school year before school let out last week:

The assignment was to recreate a model of a Roman home. With candy. She used graham crackers, icing, gummy Life Savers, chocolate bars, marshmallows, and Skittles. Paul helped by sorting the Skittles into different colors, making the icing-glue, and helping assemble the walls. My participation was limited to eating the leftover gummy Life Savers.

The girl said that everyone was excited to eat all the projects after they were graded.

On a side note, South Carolina was the 8th most obese state in the US last year, while ranking 12 in childhood obesity. Apparently, it's not for lack of trying.
