May 2007

On the last day of work with the kids, we did a closing day celebration party and I volunteered for face painting. I’ve done it before, but it has been a long time. I was an art major and you would think this would be a cinch, but my supplies were limited and I was not going to buy real face paint out of my own money, so I was stuck using the paints the kids use for art projects. Also all of my own personal brushes and supplies are…you guessed it, PACKED!  Well, my butterfly and spider were the most popular (and you can bet which gender chose what!)

Unfortunately, because of the kind of paint that it was, after it dried out, it cracked and fell off. The gal who was doing it with me decided to go with those really thin flexible, stencils and a sponge brush, and they lasted for hours! We even did each other and wore them all day (even when we all went out to eat!)  They were much cuter too!



Christopher has been doing the next 2 actions for a few years now, ever since he discovered he could.  So I thought I would show everyone!

As I drive around there are areas that are not built up much or are just open areas and due to what people drop or are careless with, the wind blows it around and it can get real trashy in lots of spots.

Even in our back yard there is always stuff blowing up over the walls or through the gate. I guess this will always be the case. I also keep seeing bags EVERYWHERE! I know that this bag was a recent wind deposit, because these people keep there lot very nice. It just goes to show that the wind is no respecter of persons!

I was driving out late the other night and I looked up in the sky and saw something I do not ever remember seeing before. The moon was positioned directly above that bright one that I believe is Venus. It looked really cool that way, so since I had my camera I snapped a shot.
