We spent the weekend at my cousin Britney's to take care of her 4 kids while they were away celebrating their 10 year anniversary. We went to the zoo with 6 kids and while it was crazy, it was a blast!
A woman at church recently was moving and tried to sell her piano. When she had no luck she decided to give it away for free! So now I have a piano here in Athens and I am going to try to build up a studio here to help make some money while john is still in school. I am grateful to be able to contribute and to use my love for music to help others and our family.
We have great neighbors. The other day the I bought a pool at Walmart for $7.88 and filled it up from the sink bowl of water by bowl of water. The kids jumped in their bathing suits and ended up washing the cars out in the playground! They used a whole can of shaving cream and they loved it!
We have been studying creativity and imaginination at joy school and the kids learned about spontaneous delight at Amy's house and we played with shaving cream and they had so much fun! I love what joy school is teaching them, sometimes Joy and Happiness is a learned skill. It is so important to find joy in everyday life.
Yesterday the kids and I went to Sandy Creek and hiked the trails and went to the nature center. They were running full speed through those trails and Avett didn't even care when he would fall and trip over the roots on the path, he would just get right up and keep going, I loved their enthusiasm for nature. It's in their blood I know it!
Evaleigh has been taking an art class and she loves it. We go once a week to the Lyndon House to a beautiful art studio and she creates something, a take on a Van Gogh sea scape or land scape. She was very proud of the horizon lines she painted two weeks ago. I feel so proud when i see her creating and being comfortable in her own element. She loves art so much.
