If you are coming from Building Heavenly Bridges (BHB), WELCOME and if you are finding me for the first time and looking for support after a loss, then please check me out at my grief/loss blog!

This blog is a series of anecdotes from our life after losing our first child, a stillborn daughter, then going on to birth the two other lights of our lives!

Bear is 6: serious, organized, my cruise director and my time keeper.

The Comedian is 4: She is pure comedy always doing something unintentionaly funny that I attempt to put into words.

Enjoy our stories, conversations, and delights as we embrace the lives of our second and third daughters without ever negating our first.

Show and Tell: It's All About The Arts Baby!

Arts Night at the elemetary school is a BIG deal. A BIG DEAL!

It is a celebration of all things creative: visual art, voice, and instruments. In fact, for a small school (110 kids K-12) they go all out! So many people come to support their kids, grandkids, nieces and nephews, in fact, that there is barely room for people to stand!

This was Bear's first year. Each child had their own 'exhibit'.

A few Bearish selections...

Walking the halls is great! And then, they sing... It is cute, but looooong. Comedian decided to make herself comfortable...

Why yes - of course - by lying belly down in the middle of the isle, program in hand and without concern for any people that might actually want to walk there - or take pictures. Ha! I love that girl. She really knows how to live life!

The musical theme was 'America' with Memorial Day so close. They really did a nice job! I'd share a short video snippet with you but blogger hates me. Soon, real - soon, we will work out our differences, amicably - of course.

Happy Memorial Day to all...our kids know their freedom didn't come free. What are you showing and telling?

They do such a fantastic job. And the Bear's pictures are great--I love the violin.

Are the grades under 10 kids each?

Kristin said...

I really love the artwork! And, Comedian looks so comfy.

The violin is so awesome! I really like the butterflies and honeybees also - wonderfully colorful and happy!

I have my kids' artwork up all over the house - I call it my "Louvre". Even after we redid our kitchen walls, I had to put up all the kids art again. Dh didn't shed any tears, but I have to admit, I was a little sad to paint over some of the "grafitti" we had on our interior walls!

Drawings done by kids always make me happy!

The Bear is very talented, like her mama.

One thing I love about kids (like the Comedian) is their sense of entitlement about space and time.

Bear is so talented! I especially loved the blue butterfly one! Bear, you are so awesome!

I wanted to express about Comedian, but Lori has already done so, eloquently!

Emmy said...

What a great art show! The artwork is beautiful.

That is a small school! How fun!

Cassandra said...

Nice work, Bear!

For all of the benefits of a small school, I can also see the kids as they get older getting very tired of seeing the same few kids every year. Hopefully everyone gets along for many years to come!

Wow, I love Bear's artwork. And Lori did say it quite eloquently, as Wiseguy pointed out...oh, to have a child's sense of ownership of their own body and space again.

How awesome! We have an art show type of thing at our school, but it isn't as individualized as yours. I'm so jealous! That's it, I'm moving in with you! ;o) Great job, Bear! Your art work is BEAUTIFUL!

Wow, I'm so impressed with the art show. Especially the violin. That's great!
