The Art Show

Tonight Alex's preschool hosted an art show with sculptings and artwork done by none other than the mini-Picassos who attend said school.

Naturally it is the highlight of the school year for me, because driving there and back twice a day isn't quite enough. And to make tonight even more special, it has been cold and rainy all day.

Have I mentioned that I have hermit-like tendencies? I like to be home. And in pajama pants. 

I offered Alex some ice cream if she would let us just stay home, but since she'd been talking all day about what outfit she was going to wear to the art show, I had a feeling it wouldn't work.

So we trudged through the puddles and showed up to see the "art."

I wish I had brought my camera, because I think you would have enjoyed seeing a picture of Alex's sculpture.
It was placed on a table right next to Grace's exhibit and as far away from Keira's as possible.

Grace had made 3 different things that were readily identifiable. A butterfly, a flower, and a dinosaur.

Alex had made two round lumps of clay.
Two balls, if you will.

Any guesses as to what Keira made?

A thick stick.

I applaud her teacher's effort at keeping those two displays at opposite ends of the classroom.

I love my little artist. Balls and all.
