So as you can imagine I have approached this summer with much excitement and a little trepidation. "What will we do all day?" "How long will I be home with my children before they drive me crazy...?" Those sort of questions have been going through my head as the school year came to a close- silly as they may seem.
We are only a few days into summer break, but I can tell you what an Art Teacher does on break.... She has a blast!! I have tuckered myself and my twin 4 year olds out everyday so far. We walk everywhere- even the pool which is 11 blocks from our house. We spend our days between the library, the pool, the park and home. It has been fantastic.
Hopscotch (of course)
Decorating our entry way
Decorating our plant stand
This is the side of our steps- great place for painting because it takes a really long time to wash off!
Rapuzel (and my tan feet!)
(the chalk just melted as I used it- it was so great for blending!)
Amelia's feet smeared with blue chalk
I'm looking forward to many other artistic discoveries that we will make together this summer. And I'm hoping to make my daughter Melanie more comfortable with getting a little messy... she really loves to stay clean.
I'm thankful my husband is so wonderful- not too many husbands would like to come home to a super colorful sidewalk and house. Mine was just happy that we didn't decorate his work boots! :)
