Indian Art

Ethan and Raquel had open house this week..it is a big deal and they spend alot of time getting ready for it. Ethans class was focused on Indians..this is a "sand art" painting like certain Indian tribes did. No sand involved just beans, dried peas and oatmeal. Me and another mom volunteered to work with the kids on this project..30 third graders in a tight spot carefully laying down rice and beans was a looonnngg day! Someone was constantly stepping or sitting on someone else's creation. Someone tried to eat the art. And little beans make great little flying objects! But after they were done, I heard one of the kids say it was "sick". pretty good!

Snow in April..

The kids have been waiting for it to finally snow here..all winter we have been watching the weather reports with all this rain we have been having. There have been a few days that it was cold enough to snow but nothing happened. All the rain and never a snowflake. So we wake up the day after the kids get out for Spring break and this is what we see! They were pretty impressed..

The Easy Life

Must be nice....
