THANK YOU, *Fun Art 4 kids Blog!

This blog is one of my FAVES! 
I got so many GREAT idea!!!
I had to share them with you! 

 These spring flowers were just completed today!

These whales are an idea from the blog. I taught the kids to draw the Humpback whale using a black crayola marker. Then, we took a wet paint brush and make the black outline bleed. We used sponge paint for the background. 

 Here is another idea from the blog. The kids cut out the first letter of their name and tool this picture on Photo booth on the Mac. Very cool and will be the cover to their workfolio.

 These are funny bunnies that we drew with oil pastels! Another great art lesson from *Fun Art 4 Kids

What an Easter Day!

So, this weekend my hubs and I got an idea to take my parent's 2 man kayak out on Easter Sunday. So we loaded up the truck at went out at around 9am Sunday morning.

We got in the water, paddled out, and this was our view.... IT WAS AN AMAZING DAY OUT ON THE WATER! 

 I got this picture while we took a break and rested our arms. Jordan was loving it out here and the best part was just about to happen!!!
 A pod of about 50 spinner dolphins came swimming near us. We paddled right along side and in the middle of the pod for a good 15 mins. We were able to hear their blow holes, watch them swim underneath us, spin into the air, and pretty much wink at me!
After the awesome paddle and the dolphin encounter, we sat on the beach and soaked up some rays! It was so relaxing. I didn't want the day to end! All day Jordan had a huge smile on his face- just totally stoked on the day we had, it was priceless!

I say PASS!

So I went to see Water For Elephants this past weekend. I am a fan of all the leading actors in this movie and so I thought I'd like this film. I didn't read the book but, I had an open mind because I heard it was about a love story. 

Um well, I HATED IT! If you are into slow moving movies that show animal abuse then this is your flick. Not to mention spousal abuse too! The set design was awesome but other than that I'd have to say PASS!

They Left on a Jet Plane... Not sure when they'll be back again...

My brother, sister-in-law, and 2 yr old niece were just on Maui for a 10 day visit. It was a lot of fun having them here. We hung out poolside, ate at all our favorite places, went to the beach, played with Soph, made cookies, looked for frogs at night, watched Tinkerbell the movie, had happy hour, and laughed A LOT! 

Tonight, I took them to the airport and I am also so sad when that time comes. I hate when they have to leave and say goodbye. It's like I get empty nest syndrome. I hope they'll be back soon.

Feeling a little antsy....

Hello Followers (all 15 of you!),
I have been MIA lately on here b/c I was busy, off in California for spring break, and just haven't had the urge to spill the beans lately. 
One thing I have noticed is that I am ready for change and I don't think I can wait much longer. 
I want to move into our new house and not wait till June. I want the school year to wrap up and start summer time. My daily routine is getting a little boring and I want more time for "ME". I want to pack, organize, plan, and clean things but don't know where to start. 
Have you ever felt like this?
