The Artist(s)

No, this isn't a review of the Oscar winning film The Artist.  It is a review of our little artists.  Lydia and I did a Toddler Art Time class this month.  So much fun!  And, the teacher was Jack's preschool teacher and Samuel's Toddler Art Time teacher.  Jason took a few sessions of this class when Samuel was 2-3 years old (and became somewhat famous for it in advertisements for the Arts Center where this is offered ~ showing up in many advertisements for the Arts Center).  In fact, this photo is still used today and is often on their site in Fall and Winter as the sign-up photo for Toddler Art Time. It is a great photo!

And, here's a glimpse into little missy getting a little messy! 

This post was originally just going to be about Toddler Art Time ... BUT, the boys had their annual spring break sleepover with their cousins, and they did this SUPER COOL project.  So, here they are with their masterpieces (Rita, you are so creative!!!).

Laura Ingalls Wilder Day

Last week at school Jack had a Laura Ingalls Wilder Day where the kids dressed in costume.  They spent the day making candles, dancing, tin punching, making treats, sewing, etc.  It happened to be the same day that Jason volunteers in Samuel's classroom.  So, he spent the morning in Samuel's classroom and the afternoon with Jack's class.  Such a good Daddy ...
 Jack, do you think the boys wore Nike baseball socks in LIW days?

 Jason and Jack Candle Dipping

And, this little lady? 
When Jason volunteers at school, Lydia hangs out with "Gamma" Goose ~ these two get a little lot crazy together.  Jason does appreciate coming home on these days and finding that Gamma has fixed Lydia's hair (Jason will be the first to admit that he still hasn't quite conquered the little rubberbands and getting her hair into piggies).
