First Grade Meets Master Artist Piet Mondrian

This year I have been volunteering for Meet the Masters program in Spencer's class. Each month we meet a new artist and do some type of art work that resembles the work of the artist of the month. Each time the student's art work turns out so beautiful. I just love to see the concentration, questions and different work from each student using the same materials. We do a short lesson on the artist themselves too, I love to hear the comments whenever I show the portrait of the artist too.

We always enjoy the parade. Great time with friends. Everyone agreed that the marching bands were their favorites.

Joining Amanda Soule

A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember

In the wilderness

This wide open space far from asphalt, traffic, people, and distractions is something I am proud to say I have instilled a love for in my boys. Spencer asked to go to the frog ponds in the dunes. So we took a little drive on Sunday afternoon to find out just what we might find in the wilderness. Frogs, salamanders, tadpoles, ducks, and two very excited boys finding their wilderness.
