Grammas and Paint

We had a fun visit with Gramma Gail and Granddaddy. There's not much to do in this small town in the winter so we really get some quality time with visitors. The kids showed them lots of their school work and there was many musical performances too.

Cousin Shane is a real artist. Tim got to see one of his art shows on his last trip to Utah. I wished I could have gone. Just today Jane and I finished a whole visual arts unit. We learned about what to look for in landscape paintings, and about abstract sculpture, and other artsy terms that we are hoping will make us sound smart next time we visit an art museum. The lesson ended with Jane sitting by the birdcage trying to draw Ginny and Hermione but she got frustrated and quit.  I  suggested maybe trying a more abstract drawing instead but she is 100% realist- artistically and otherwise ;)
