We had our homeschool art show over the weekend and it was a super-duper success! The students all were very proud to share their artwork with friends and relatives. I think there were around thirty people who attended so that was a great turnout on a cold and rainy Saturday afternoon. I had fun making the displays with some of the other moms and it really was a great way to showcase all of the projects the kids had worked so hard in completing over the term.
The second large display held the Joan Miro projects which they did with markers and used the dice game that we found on Pinterest. If I were doing this project with another group, I would make sure have them fill in their pages more and complete a background.
We had an awesome afternoon sharing our artwork and eating wonderful food. One of the moms was very artistic and made these deviled eggs that created an artist’s palette and she stenciled some cave art on top of the cheesecake. Thanks Willow!
The other highlight of the past week or so was a lunch date with all three of my men. Mr. D had the day off from work and he drove up to take me to lunch. The other two boys wanted to go too so we made it a quick lunch so Mr. A could get to work on time. What a treat!
Now we have hit mid-year I am feeling the press to fit a lot of little things into Mr. B’s last few months before graduation. He has taken on another volunteer position which will start in a few months so he is hoping he can accelerate some of his academic work to allow more time for that. I am going to sit with my planner and his schedule and see what will work. He has signed up for another class at the community college this semester but that is only two mornings a week and now that he drives it is really not a big deal to drive himself the five miles each way to his class.
Getting close but still savoring the moments.
