learning to make an inuksuk

i signed ella up to take part in a sweet little workshop about building an inuksuk at the children's festival. inuksuit (inuksuk plural) were built (and still are i suppose) by inuit people - they are kind of like stone cairns that resemble humans. they were used to help indicate the way for travellers or to pass along messages or to store food under... (here's what wikipedia has to say about them.)

this is the third year in a row i've taken ella to the children's festival in st. albert. there are so many fun things to do, and most of them are free! we have big love for the festival! even though ella was quite sick this year, we didn't want to miss it, and she managed to muster some enthusiasm in the spirit of it all.
