thursday art and joy and glitter hair ....

my day started with rain ... and drying a tennis court with squeeeeegeeeeees and towels and blowers .... and then playing and getting caught by rain at the very end of my match ... so .... we were one set each ... and crossing our fingers that the monsoons will stop and we can play one last set tomorrow .... so ... i tell you that cause my day was eat up with tennis and rain .... until late in the evening .... i dropped my big kids off for their play ... and the little one and i went to the art studio .... and i did some tidying .... i got the middle three shelves cleared off .... didn't quite get all the junk sorted though, cause i got waylayed by eggs...


a cute girl with eggs .... she was using sharpies to decorate some painted blown eggs ..... and then when the glitter glue came out, i had to jump in too ... hard to resist glitter glue ....
so we each were glittering an egg, and then i said OH NO .... we're supposed to get back to school NOW to get good seats for the play! ... don't get glittery, there's no water in the sink ... finish up! .... and just as sure as you say hurry, hurrying won't happen ... we had a time figuring out how to get those eggs to dry without our usual skewers, which were moved with the whole entire kitchen 3 months ago ..... finally i figured out pencil tips could precariously balance the eggs..... so there you go! two glittery eggs drying .....
so we took our glittery selves to school and washed up there .... i only have a little glitter in my hair ... how does that always happen ... 

and then ... a new thing for me ... i took some videos of the group scenes in beauty and the beast .... girl.beck.artist is a plate .... boy.beck.artist is a spoon .... the one at the far right ..... if it's just too painful to watch someone else's home video of their goofy kids, it's ok to skip!!


video

my tomorrow is going to be just like my today .... some tennis, some art time, watching my kids in the play .... perfect!
hope you had a happy day today ... and that tomorrow is more of the same!

How adorable! I watched the video. Especially love the singing and can-canning at the end! ha I don't know how you even fit in time to run over to your studio with 3 kids, tennis and the like. I barely make time to get into mine which is just in the basement! The studio is looking wonderful. Keep at it. You'll get there.

Absolutely excellent! Such a talented group! My little one is quite the singer/dancer/ham-it-up-er, but he hasn't had the chance to be in a musical like this yet. I look forward to those days!

Oh my gosh that video is just wonderful! Well, the kids in the video is what I really mean...that looks like the perfect way to spend an evening!

And oooh, you're cleaning - I'm impressed, and I'll match you bag for bag of goodwill stuff! heh...
