I guess it's an "only in Minnesota" thing. Ice shacks turned into art installations for the month of February on a frozen lake!
We ventured out there this morning to discover what a group of kind-minded people have been busy working on during these stir-crazy winter months.
We discovered everything from an "Arcade" shanty with full-on AIR HOCKEY table - to a Justice Shack where they were making peace flags for our changing world.
We traced Otto on a wall, made an alien bookmark and told fortunes at a slumber party. We climbed into a bird house.
Axel when asked to hang a leaf on a tree answering the question, "What comforts you?" wrote, "My brother."
Perhaps my favorite part was playing giant-frozen-lake-author-style "GUESS WHO."
Playing against each other - with 24 writers to choose from - my two white little boys chose the SAME BLACK WOMAN as "their person."
Toni Morrison - the Stephens boys got your back!
Announcement coming this week about my new adventure. Sorry to keep you waiting.
NEW - I'm searchable!
