One night the older kids started reminiscing about the stories they loved to read when they were younger. They found a favorite story collection

Leif got on a real haunted house drawing kick in October. He decided to mail one to Grandma C. Did it make it there Grandma?
Look at Leif's chubby little toes. By the way, this last picture is the reason I now need to refinish the kitchen table. Again. If I refinish it, it will be the 4th time it's been sanded and stained! ;-0. Leif decided to paint his picture after I'd all ready gone to bed and I didn't realize he had water color all over the table top. I think I was tired and went to bed early that night. (Maybe because I'd had insomnia the night before. Haha.) I love these water colors though. They are liquid water colors from Dick Blick and they are really vibrant.

primary school art teacher as a profession. It would be my dream job. Sadly, Idaho doesn't pay for art teacher positions in elementary. Tears. Deep Sigh.....But that's okay because I do it for free as a volunteer and enjoy myself immensely. And I know the kids do too!
Here's our version of northwest coastal Indian masks.
Notice in the background, on the right, my little art corner I created. That dresser was a dumpster find at Ricks College years ago and through the years has been a dresser for Hailey, Heidi, and Taylor. I gave it a new coat of paint this summer and it's now serving as a place to store oil pastels, markers, texture tools, scissors, construction paper, paint cups, and all sorts of artsy goodness.The art room is the cafeteria which is also a stage. I love this small old school.

I decided to pick up blogging again. Maybe it will stick? If not, I'm going to try not to feel guilty about it. In the meantime.....
Leif and Reagan. Leif's costume is obvious but you may have to look close to figure out Reagan's. He found clothes, made a name tag and did his hair all on his own. I love when kids can start being independent like that. I have never seen the movie "Ace Ventura" by the way.....have you?
Hailey was a tire mechanic and Heidi was a tire. Heidi had a paper pinned to her sleeve that said "Firestone". I find it funny that two of my children had to make and wear labels to identify themselves. ;)
