Our Ocean Wall

1281_470714953010362_1184719576_nAfter a week of a blank chalkboard wall, tic-tac-toe, and random graffiti, we finally decided it was time for a new mural.  I had thought a camping scene was a good idea for summer, but it was voted down.  J and Z had been learning about  coral reefs and ocean life in their summer school science lessons, so they wanted an under water scene.

I knew this was going to be a big project so we enlisted some friends to help.  This is K, a friend from our homeschool support group.  She did an awesome job on the plants, coral, purple fish, and pink dolphin.
