Art and flowers.

Good morning, it is Wednesday.

Last night was the Art Walk at Grass Lake Elementary school. The art docents were given a quick introduction then it was off to see the art. There was a fun little scavenger hunt where a little green gator was stapled to a kid's work of art (20 in all) and when you filled out your page, you got a cool pencil. Lillie's class (who I docent for) had 4 walls of art on display! There are a couple of pics below, but first you get a picture of Lillie and some flowers. The roses are fake, but they last a long time and look good imo. The Forsythias grow in the back yard and remind me of coconut frosting on a large slice of cake. I like this picture...and for Maren fans out there, you can spot her lurking in the background.

Here is one of Hansen's pieces of artwork. It is a T-rex made out of wire. The kids were given no instruction other than to make something that using your imagination made from the wire. Hansen's T-rex was very cool, it really stood out in comparison to other wire thingies made by classmates.
This is one of Lillian's pieces of art. The sponge tree project turned out very well. The artist gene has definitely landed on the Slane kids!

Tonight we have piano lessons for the littles, soccer and an orthodontist appointment for Preston.

See you tomorrow.

Very nice artwork! I do love a glimpse of Maren, especially when she's posing :)
