|The typical start to an Easter Egg Hunt, right? Yes, the shotgun to start it is typical, but something is missing...|
|Ahh, now that's more like it. Here's the rest of the kids lined up for the egg hunt. Oh, no, wait, we're missing Kate and Jesse. Yes, they really hide eggs for the grown up kids, too...including me, this year (thanks Easter Bunnies).|
Now, back at Belle Ami...
Being the day after Easter, Midwestern schools are closed. As a special treat, Faithie let her younger sister Ava tag along to art class. It's tricky teaching siblings, as the younger tends to compare herself to the older, playing an impossible game of catch-up. I put them at opposite ends of the table, so they drew the same thing, but from different angles.
|Faith is pretty accomplished at drawing what she sees, and even did a second drawing, pulling out the individual elements in a really cool graphic style piece, while Ava finished hers.|
|Faithie signs her masterpiece, impatient to get to today's project, paper puppets (which I forgot to get pictures of).|
|Ava finishing up hers. If she reminds you a bit of Hilary Knight's drawings of Kay Thompson's "Eloise", you've got it about right.|
