super proud mama here :)
yesterday while i was getting dinner together & what not, the kids decided to have a little "art club". & they pulled out their paper & crayons & scissors &, in kelly's case, water soluable oil pastels and sat & drew & colored & painted & clipped & taped their little hearts out.
& i was blown away by their creativity. i mean i know they are creative, but seriously...they were whipping out their most clever & brilliant tricks yesterday!
like ryan, he was drawing a picture of the Jets v. the Cowboys (booooo hisssss) & in order to do the image of the crowd in the stadium, he gathered a bunch of different color crayons in his little hand & swirled them around in the "stands". how brilliant is that!!! here's how it turned out....(notice the score...58-0...cowboys take another lickin'! LOL!!)
kate meanwhile created a little book entitled "A Haircutting Adventure". HAHA! how cute is that! but she seriously spent hours drawing her pages & stamping hello kitty stamps everywhere & making tiny bits of tape to hold the pages together. i was super impressed with the taping job. it was meticulous...strips of tape about 1 1/2" long pasted on nice & neat to make the binding. and the cutting & pictures were so cute! she definitely is getting really good with that left hand, that's for sure! (she broke her wrist a month ago...hence the ladybug cast :)
kelly is getting really, really good at adding more & more personality to her little characters. i've got to find an art class for this girl. she really has such an original artistic voice, i would love to see her develop it more. i especially love how she does all the hairstyles.
she is working really hard on her little book. i'll have to share it when she finishes :)
can't wait until their next session of "art club" :)
