Tribe Metcalf

We always have a craft at our reunions, mostly for the kids, but the adults join in too. This year Egan and I were in charge! We stuck to the theme (Fortune Favors the Brave) and our symbol (the triangle) which helped narrow our brainstorming.
We started with a devotional on being brave. I made a power point of brave people in history (martin luther king jr, ruby bridges, louis zamporini, the first women marathoner, stripling warriors, etc) and Egan shared a scripture. We had a nice little discussion about what it means to be brave and follow the commandments.
For the craft, my dad, the woodcutter that he is, had cut out a load of triangles with a hole in them. We provided the family with a variety of beads, colorful thread, and paint. The options were either a necklace or a key chain and the creativity was up to them. It was fun to see what everyone painted on the beads and how they put it all together.
But let's be honest, we all end up copying Egan cause she always has the coolest ideas and executions at the craft table.

p.s. forgive Egan and I looking beat. we had just run 14 miles in hilly Heber.
