If you live in California you know that in the 4th grade you do a California Mission project complete with model.  My daughter built this one with a little assistance from me. Posted Image   Sorry the photos aren't great quality.

Interesting MOC, I like the combination of colors, the well placed trees and the atmosphere of peace, not to mention the roof and how well the white bricks made the walls.
I also love the fact of the mutual work between daughter and father, I hope you passed a great time together.  :thumbup:
And hopefully too she gets an A+.

I'd say some dad in California has got to be extremely proud of his daughter these days!!

I remember building mine out of Lego, but not that well.

I also remember the teacher getting really mad at someone who knocked over a palm tree; I don't think she realized it could be put back easily.

That's really well done! It's obvious both of you enjoyed the build. My favourite is the garden in the back with all the trees, fruits, flowers and crops in the garden.

Thanks for all the nice reply's.  It was a lot of fun to build with her and to build again in general its been over a year since I built anything other than the new modular buildings by Lego.  The model attracted a lot of positive attention at her school (most of the kindergarten through 4th grade boys have elevated her to god like status) and you'll all be happy to know she got an A+.  My wife wanted to donate it to the Mission as a permanet display.  I am thinking about it....its almost all my brown tiles on the darn roof, plus its gotta be around 10,000 pieces easy. Maybe a temporary display would be better Posted Image.

Great build. Good team work.

I think a temporary display would suffice!

I'd certainly go for the latter.
