Friday we got to go back to Art class after being off for two weeks. After everyone had been sick for what seemed like forever, it was nice to get them all out of the house for the first time in almost 2 weeks. Everyone had been fever free for 2 days, although they still had runny noses and a little bit of a cough. They were glad to be back at Art! We did three fun projects. First they learned about Picasso and designed and colored their own Picasso-like drawings. Next we made the North Pole using a paper towel roll, construction paper, glitter, and cotton. They turned out so cute! For the last project of the day they got to do a painting with water colors of their choice.
Every week after Art we go to the park for a picnic and to play. We skipped that this week but we did go to the library and Walmart. We had quite a long list! I had promised the children they could buy a few more fish for their tank because we had lost a few. On the way out the automatic doors, one of the bags of fish fell and broke open. Water was everywhere! One of the two goldfish was flopping around on the floor and poor Anthony was trying to scoop him up! I grabbed the bag that had one fish and a little water left in it and he caught the flopping fish and put him in. An associate came over with Wet Floor signs and Chelsea went back to get a new bag for the fish (that died the next day.) Always an adventure!
