Lily's latest from Monart. It's a winter scene of 2 people pullling a sled with a house in the background. It's done in marker and chalk pastel. She was especially proud of the shadows.
Her penguin that is up at the theater where Happy Feet is showing. We need to go check it out.
Jeff with a Charlie Brown Christmas tree. We watched it just a couple of nights ago--I love that show!!
Getting ready to go look for a tree. Lily is measuring herself with the tree measuring stick.
Wyatt's monster in charcoal that he did in art class. I thought it was cool.

Well, we went to TRY to cut down our Christmas tree last night. It had rained off and on all day, but luckily stopped right before we went. The selection at the tree farm was pitiful. The tallest they had was about 5 feet and that's just too short of a Christmas tree for me. I think the kids were a little disappointed, but we went to Lowe's and got a great tree for $20!! Can't beat that!! Next year we'll have to do some research and try to find a better tree farm. This year is just kind of crazy with me starting this job and us trying to get the basement finished. That's what we will be working on all weekend. Our carpet is in and we need to get some finish work done before they can install it.
The job is going great. I'm getting to know the kids and all of them are really sweet kids! It's really rewarding to know I am helping them learn. I have been giving tests, assessing students and generally helping them in class. My days go really fast. I just need to get better about going to bed earlier! I still want to stay up like I used to and I'm afraid it's gonna catch up with me. Luckily, it hasn't seemed to yet.
