In my idle time at work yesterday...all three minutes of it...I thought of something for the family visits which have occurred and decided to share it in its infancy. Please expand on it as you see fit.
What does everyone think about taking a few pieces of wood, any size, shape, species, and using them to create a sort of journey log? Pass them from family member to family member as we visit and add our own little signature to each piece. It may just be a name and date, or gluing on a shaving from a project that was shared. We're an imaginative bunch and it'd be interesting to see how it evolved.
