Ancestor Project - Blues pour flirter

 For the last two weeks I have been happily immersed 
in the Ancestor Project at l'ecole Oceane where the children
have named the puppet Madame Pacifica.

So many interesting stories were shared by the students from kindergarten to grade 7

 We even had the pleasure of a visit with Kait Burgan who shot her local TV show GO! Island! at the school.  She interviewed children about their masks and received interesting facts about great great great great grand fathers' lives!

Kait Burgan and students from grade 1 and 2

The students painted a portrait of one of their ancestors or a scene from the many stories that came to life during this two week immersion in the past.  It became clear to me that by connecting with our family line we connect with a part of ourselves.

A big thank you to my friend Carole Reid - photograph extraordinaire 
for the beautiful pictures she took at different stages of the project.

The music of Toots Thielemans was perfect to relax at the end of the day.
Here's  Blues pour flirter - hope you like it too! Let me know:)
