Today I headed to the kid’s school for a Parents Council meeting, so I took a moment to capture this work of art on the wall by Violet’s classroom.
Today Violet brought home her first home work. She’s supposed to bring in different things that represents her and present them to the class. So this evening we watched as she put it all together, and I just had to capture it for today’s picture of the day. Of course there was to many things to include them all in the picture, but I think I captured the most important ones.
Today the kids headed off to their first day of school. They both had a great day, seeing there friends and meeting there new teachers. I can’t believe that Jacob is in grade 5 and Violet is in 2nd. Where did the time go. This could also be the last first day of school at St. Teresa’s school. We’re hoping their new school will be finished in time for next year.
In two sleeps the kids head back to school, so we began getting their bags ready for the big day. I love how excited they both are to get back to school.
Today we have a picture of Jacob working on his PSA for his media literacy project. He worked really hard on it, first coming up with the idea for his Kids help phone poster and then doing all the work. I’m so proud of him.
With parent teacher interviews over the last couple of days I got see see some of the art work at the school. So for today’s picture of the day I have a piece Jacob did. They were supposed to use a single colour and experiment with shading. I think he did a good job.
While I wanted the kids to go to school today dressed as Catholic school children, they insisted on wearing their costumes.
Today there was an Art show at the kid’s school. While I didn’t get a chance to be there, Melissa was and captured this work of art from my little diva.
I thought the days of art coming home from school was done with Violet in Grade 1, bu I was wrong. For Thanksgiving she brought home this great Turkey Centre piece.
Today we have a picture of some of Violet’s homework. For an adult looking over the sheet the first thought is what’s the differences between the fishes patterns. For Violet it was, that one’s bigger.
