Eliza was assigned to make a 3-D model of Venus for school. Over the past 2 days we have unsuccessfully attempted making it twice and we finally succeeded the third time. We wasted spray paint and 2 different types of balls only to realize they weren't going to work. Finally in a state of near panic I drove to Wal-Mart in search of something that would work and the thought came to me to try wrapping yarn around a styrofoam ball. I only hoped I'd be able to find the right color of yarn. Luckily, I found what I needed at Porter's and was relieved when it actually turned out looking rather nice. Eliza was excited with the end product and was very helpful making it. Here's to Eliza and Venus!!Goofy Eliza, it took a lot longer to wrap it than anticipated and she got to stay up past bedtime.

Some close ups of our masterpiece!
It's "out of this world!" I know, I'm a nerd!
