My Birthday C Moore age 11

Here are the end result of two wonderful sketches by the children at our birthday, where we explored Monet and the impressionists! The children had a fun filled party, painting and pinata and produced some wonderful paintings! Though the subject was the same, the 13 paintings turned out differently,all with their own personality!

Inspired by Waterlilies T Moore age 13

Life has been busy throwing us her ups and down. This last week we celebrated both the death of a dear friend and young mother who passed away, and the birthday of our lovely daughter - an emotional time. Bittersweet.

and today for the Brave Girls Club

The details of life are awesome, enjoy the ride!
Friends are Awesome!

Have a Happy Sunday and enjoy the moments in your day!
