Yesterday I took a journey back with my parents–we did origami together. Or at least we tried…
Friends reconnecting with me over facebook–still talk about my 10th birthday party–my parents cleared the dining room and we had an Asian inspired party…with my Dad teaching a room full of kids how to do origami. It’s one of my favorite memories-so I decided we should do some origami again.
But since their house was destroyed in a fire, all of my dad’s trusty origami books were lost. So we turned to the internet for instructions. I have to say I can’t remember the last time I laughed so hard. We were doing pretty well until we would get to step 12…and then nothing. My son Matthew ditched us after a few tries. My father, being the book lover he is, insisted that you really need a BOOK to learn anything.
He returned today with two books–which we will try this weekend.
