A couple of years ago, a good neighbor gave us an outdoor seashell display. They saw it at the store anthought of getting one for me as it was made in the Philippines.

Last year, we also did a project where each of us can write our personal thoughts and feelings for simething and drop it in the bucket for us to reflect on before we go to bed.
