A good friend had her first sleepover at our house. They swam, put on a fashion show, built a blanket fort, stayed up way late, swam some more, played board games, and made beautiful jewelry.
The girls artwork was featured in a summer art show at their art school. In addition to the show, there was a tag sale of used art materials.
Lilah purchased 12 paint brushes, Grace got some erasers and I was able to get a sketchbook, a calligraphy book, an art textbook, and two coffee mugs for $4! I loved seeing how proud they were to show us their art. The teachers at the school were talking to them and asking questions about their class. I love that CAW has sparked their interest in art and developed their skills.This is a time I want to hold on to. The little girl giggles, the hushed whispers, the proud first moments, the newfound independence, and yes....the bickering and tattling, the rolling of the eyes and the "whatever"s. I will take all these moments and treasure them.
