Buona Festa del Papa'

As promised, here's a photo of the gift my third grader made at school for Father's Day:

Yup. It's a bottle of wine, with the label designed by my daughter. For those who may remember, my daughter's class took a field trip last fall where they learned how wine is made. They actually took off their shoes and socks and smushed the grapes themselves. That was in September. Six months later...a bottle of wine!

It's not half bad, either (as long as you block out the image of all those toes in your wine...)

That's quite a unique gift! Wish I could take the same field trip.

Uhh, regarding your comment about toes, better just hope for no nail fungus... ;)

Ahhh.. my oldest did that in second great.. she thought it was wonderful ... most of the other kids had already had a similar expereince and considered everything having to do with a vineyard...work!!

I'm sure the feet were washed well before stomping!!!

A few more days and I'll be back in ITALY!!!!!!!!

but it was 'great' too!

Wow! Wine from your kid. Out here they just make a construction paper tie and decorate it. :)

I'm just now actually seeing the image (it took a while to upload). What a sweet label! "You are a great Father...now go get drunk!"

That is a great label! And I would love a present like this from either of our kids if I didn't happen to know that they have athlete's foot (they can never remember to take their flip-flops to the swimming pool).

My husband used to work at a winery in France, picking grapes. He often waxes lyrical about what a great time he had there...

africakid and angela, it was great seeing you both in Bologna!

Julie...HA! That about says it all, doesn't it?

Ah, Mary...athlete's foot?? I'm hoping you buy your wine at the grocery store. :-)
