The monotony of our weekly routine was just killing me recently. So, as the principal of our local homeschool, “Grace, Mercy and Finish It Now!” Elementary/Middle School, Beth and I got the boys through their work as quickly as possible and we headed over to a town to the west of Queretaro. This little town produces mostly wooden furniture but in one of the very last stores we walked into, we found some really cool rain-stick serpents. This one was the largest size. I almost went with the medium but for a few bucks more, the large one could be had. And besides, we’d driven over an hour to get there so we might as well blow $30 and get something worth remembering.
It’s actually a really cool piece of art and I won’t let the kids play with it. Maybe I should spend more money and have it put into a wooden case with a glass top or something. Hmmmm…I think I’m too cheap for that. But it is cool and I’ll post a video of it so you can hear it too. I’m very proud of this find. We’ve never seen one of these anywhere else in Mexico so I think we stumbled across a unique piece.
