Artists

Each of my children have had art shows the last few months.

Miss F was so proud of her work. She couldn’t wait to show me when I picked her up from her playgroup. I have to admit I am happy that we did not give up on the program for her. She was not loving being away from me at first, so we skipped it for a few months. Now, she loves spending time with her friends and being involved in the activities planned.

S also had an Art Show a few weeks ago. He had several pieces displayed and was pretty excited about what the art teacher chose for him.

And Miss P also had an art show that was featured at a local library.

Our local library has some really cute activities for all age groups. Miss F and I go once a week for a class there. A few weeks ago they had duck eggs there. It was adorable to see the little kids go every week to see if the ducks hatched.

When they did, it was the talk of the town, or at least in my home anyway. Miss F could not get enough of them.

The weekly class is over for the season, but we still walk there once a week to read books and build puzzles. The ducks are long gone, back on the farm.

Practice Practice

Our last home wasn’t ideal for Miss P and her practice for dance. She danced in the playroom downstairs and it had carpet. When it came to her hard shoe practicing, the carpet wasn’t allowing her to actual hear her steps. The garage was over crowded and the upstairs wood floors would be beaten by her pounding.

For the new home, we decided to use the garage as her practice area. Alex and I pull our cars out and then we roll her mats. Eventually we are going to put up mirrors along one wall, but for now she has one mirror. I also added neon poster board with reminders of what she needs to work on and some uplifting words to keep her motivated when she is ready to throw in the towel.

The space has been working out great. She can shut the door and not be bothered or distracted and it has become a cute little dance studio.
