Our paint brushes took a bath!

Well, we tried out our Creative Juices art yesterday.  Sophie did her abstract squares and circles painting and Lily painted her peace sign.  Lily really did a great job sort of figuring it out.  She is alot like me when it comes to wanting to do things on her own.  She took a little instruction from me here and there and Voila, it turned out perfect.  Sophie was a different story.  Which made me realize that I am really going to need mommy help in that 4-6 year old class.  I am reminded every year when school starts how 4 year olds are really still babies and they have to have EVERYthing broken down for them in steps.  The thing that I had to stress with Sophie was washing out her brush every time she wanted to change colors.  So in between washes, Sophie says, " Mommy, I am giving my paintbrush a bath!"  I love those moments and the little giggles that come after!  Priceless!!!!

Good Morning Needle and Thread.

Today, I couldn't sleep late.  I have been inspired by all of the crafty mommy blogs.  I made butterfly flip flops yesterday and this morning I have managed to doll up all of the girls headbands with frills.  Wish I hadn't waited til so late in the summer to decide to do this.  The dentist appointments went really well yesterday.  No cavities!!!!  We went to Hobby Lobby and purchased sample canvas' so we could get started on the paintings for my new children's art classes.  Can't wait for those to begin.  Now, though I have to start thinking of my back to school classroom.

Dr. Holly

So today is Sophie's first visit to Dr. Holly's office.  That is our dentist.  I hope she isn't too wiggly for her.  Wish us luck!
