Modern Art Exhibit

Art Exhibit Collage


We started back to school this week!  So far, so good.  I’m figuring out some things I’ll need to do to adjust the schedule.

We’re doing swim lessons for 6 kids, 4 days a week this week and next.  It’s my 3-year-old’s first ever swim class.  I found a swim school that I LOVE, called Foss Swim School.  If you join, tell them Gena Mayo referred you!

We also started Spotlight (now known as CYT) drama classes for the 5 oldest kids.  I woke up Monday morning with a job offer to be the Spotlight class supervisor (question-answerer, snack-seller, door-locker), so I’m now doing that!  I think it will pay for maybe one kid’s class. 🙂

Modern Art Exhibit

On Tuesday we took a short field trip to a nearby museum to see a Modern Art Exhibit.  Two of the most famous paintings you can see above (by Picasso and Chagall).  I’m not much into modern art, but I still want the kids to know a bit about it.

The 3 oldest kids have the Bible Bee competition this Saturday.  They have done an excellent Bible Study on 1 John all summer, as well as memorizing a number of Scripture passages.

My oldest son is playing tackle football this year and had his first ever scrimmage yesterday.  Praying for his safety!
