Homeschool Art Show

First of all, I have to send out a big, huge THANK YOU to Christin for putting this together. "This" was an art show for our local homeschool group. Kids from nine different families participated, and Christin graciously turned her livingroom into an art gallery for the occasion.

Second, I have to say I was impressed with the variety of submissions from the kids. No two artists used the same media or technique or style, and there was quite a bit of thinking outside the box, such as BooBoo Bear's submission, "Mr. Balloon Head"...

This past Christmas BooBoo had picked out our "new" lighted decoration for the lawn, and some scoundrel(s) stole 2/3 of it on the second night it was out. Only 2/3, because the legs were very firmly staked into the ground, not conducive to a "snatch and grab" decor theft. BooBoo was so upset over the matter, that he insisted on keeping the legs. He added one of his hoodies, a flexible plumbing pipe (the arms), two kid-sized golf clubs (to operate the legs), and a happy balloon head. A masterpiece!
