Snow sculpting… again

Last week was “French culture week” at the girls’ school.  They had maple syrup taffy chilled with snow, enjoyed a visit from a dogsled team, and attended a snow sculpting presentation featuring THEIR FATHER.  It was an exciting week.  Here are some of the sculpting pictures.

The night before the presentation, Stan and his helpers (Dallas, Kim and I) took off the molds and started carving.

Stan and Dallas made a dozen tools for carving the week before the presentation so the students could try them out. Up until now, we had mostly used our machete for carving snow.

It was February 14th after all!

The next morning Stan and Dallas returned to the school.  This time they were surrounded by a crowd of curious (and impressed!) children.

Can you spot the most excited student?

Every student had the chance to add their own personal touch. This is my only shot of Belen (purple toque).

I'm adding this one for you Mary Lou.  Aren't you proud of your son?

Oh, and L’hiver is French for winter and the letters are popping out of a canoe as a nod to the voyageurs.

Happy winter carnival season to you all!
