Building a Wood Stripped Canoe #Simple Living in Practice #Weekly Menu Plan

It took two summers for my husband and kids to make a cedar wood stripped canoe. Many hours not spent playing video games or frittering away on social media were spent to make a family heirloom. 

It is so satisfying to create something that has lasting value and will provide years of enjoyment. To paddle around on our lake in this boat is closer to art then sport. I don’t think that the joy will ever fade that my family has when they look at this boat and say:

 
 “We made this.”
