Arts Festival

Today we took SJ to our church's kids arts festival. Kids got to pick 3 "seminars" about different types/forms of art and got to experience that art hands-on.

First SJ went to Delightful Drama class. She had a lot of fun here acting like a princess and then performing a musical number with all the kids at the end.

Second SJ learned about floral arranging. She designed an ice cream sundae complete with vanilla ice cream (white carnations), strawberry ice cream (pink carnations), and a cherry on top (one red carnation.) It really looked good enough to eat! Then she also got to put 2 flowers into the arrangement that was to decorate the church sanctuary on Sunday morning!

Third SJ took a dance class. SJ donned her ballet clothes and galloped and skipped across the room! One of her favorite parts of this class was getting to color in pictures of ballerinas.

Another Unseasonably Warm Day

Today was another day near 60 degrees. Quite a change from a few days ago when we got nearly another foot of snow!

SJ was very excited that she could be outside today without a coat on and with only short sleeves. I thought it was still a little chilly, but SJ was not to be deterred. She kept chanting, "I'm not cold. I'm outside without a coat on!"

By the way, let me explain her outfit. Today was also a day we spent organizing some storage areas and we came upon SJ's summer clothes from last year. She immediately had to don her favorite summer shirt from last year - the flag shirt. This is on top of her favorite tank top, which she really wanted to wear, but we said it wasn't quite that warm! Then she found her Ohio State cheerleader skirt, which again she wanted to wear by itself, but we insisted again it wasn't warm enough to have bare legs. So, on go her size 3 pants that we now call capris. Finally, she donned some butterfly socks from last summer and she was all set to enjoy her "summer" day. (I also had to draw the line when she wanted to don her first swimsuit - a size 9 month 2-piece of which she actually still fit into the bottoms!)
