Good luck! That sounds like aneat experience for a kid, heck, an adult! :wink: Those pots are painted really nicely. I’d be curious to see what plants end up in them.

Thankyou!

These are really nicely done. I love how you go tthe gradient on the elephant one. It’s beautiful. And I love the variety. Your hand writing is amazing too. The one with the flowers (sorry, I don’t know what kind) looks almost like water color. These are very impressive. I hope they raise they money!

@gozer thankyou!!

Lucky kid to have such a crafty Mom!

Nepal is a wonderful and yet sobering place to visit…she will gain a lot.

Good luck…they are well done…my fav is the GOT…Winter is Coming!

@AIMR thankyou, I am hoping she will gain life long skills and have an experience she will never forget!!!

Is she going with a group? It seems the whole country is under construction so they are trying hard to recover from the major earthquake in 2015. The people are so resilient…but the trip is a hard one…so unlike the USA. I think travel, especially to less fortunate countries, gives people a true appreciation of how fortunate we are …it is humbling. She will indeed remember it forever as I did when my dad took me to Ethiopia when I was a child.

Yes, she is going with an organisation called World Challenge, through her school. They organise trips from all over the world. They will be doing some project work. They will also be visiting local people and learning cooking and crafts.
The walking will be tough, but, they have been training.
I think she is very nervous as she has never been away from us for that long!!
I’m hoping it will let her see a different side of life…
