Sparkler Art and Ramblings

May I present, "The Flower":
"Angel Wings" or perhaps "Gunslinger"

and finally, "The Heart".
This was so much harder than it looked. We all thought we were drawing something brilliant, but then it just turned out to be scribbles on the photos. It was fun, though, and the kids enjoyed seeing a little slide show of themselves when they were done.

We returned safe and sound from our vacation, with 2250 miles on the odometer. Even after all of that riding in the car, I can honestly say that I have really good kids. They are just awesome. They behaved well, had wonderful attitudes, and didn't fight (much). We all had a great time.

I transferred all of my pictures to my parents' computer, deleted them from my camera, then forgot to make a CD before I left Georgia. I'm new to this digital stuff. So as soon as my CD comes in the mail, I'll post 267 pictures.

This week all three of the kids have art camp, which means that I have freedom from children from 9-2, five days in a row. This has NEVER happened. Never. Monday I'm going to clean the house for the entire time, then the rest of the week I'm going to try to do fun things. What should I do? Go to the Art Museum? Go shopping? Read a book? Take a nap? GO TO THE GROCERY STORE BY MYSELF? Oh, the possibilities!


  1. Well go the grocery store by yourself obviously. Because there is nothing more luxurious than having the time to comparing prices on jelly. My standards for a good time have really hit rock bottom these days.

    Whatever you do be sure to let us know.

    Very cool pictures.

  2. Love the photos. Fun!!

    I don't know what I'd do with time to myself. No idea. I'd probably be lost. :)

  3. LOVE THESE! Very fun.

    I refuse to grocery shop with kids in tow. That means I'm often at the store after 10pm or on Saturday.

    I suggest spending some quality time in a bookstore at least one day. It felt like HEAVEN when both my kids were occupied and I could dawdle all I wanted!

  4. art camp sounds like a blast! enjoy a quiet house this week.

  5. Sparklers! Looks like fun :-D We missed you this weekend.

    And I totally vote for a nap. Or 3 or 4 or 5. Heck, stay in bed all day with a book and nap between chapters. That sounds like heaven to me!

  6. I vote for multiple naps and bad tv in between. And pjs all day are a must. at least once.
