This week my daughter and I took out the unfinished houses from the village we started at Christmas. There were only two left: the schoolhouse and church. We built them quickly but I spent the better part of this very rainy afternoon adding the finishing touches. These are model train size, so they don't take up much room, but I think our next project will be to work on a 1/2" scale house together, and try making some furniture for it. I love that it is something we can enjoy together.
