Gnome Homes

There was an activity at Heritage Park the other evening: making Gnome Homes. My friend Jenn coordinates all the activities for the town hall and this was one of them. She is so creative and comes up with the cutest ideas.
Samantha invited Tara to come with us and the girls really enjoyed themselves. We arrived early so the girls went exploring in the old cemetery adjacent to the park. Jenn is really knowledgeable about the history of this particular cemetery and she gave the girls a tour. She told them where the oldest grave was and where the founder of Groveport is buried as well as what some of the symbols on the gravestones mean. The girls were really interested and then set out to find the gravestone in the newer section with the picture of Elvis on it.
The Gnome Homes turned out really cute and all the kids hoped that a gnome will come to live in their house.
