Fine Art Show at the Thompsons

My girls go to a preschool three days a week while I work. Everyday they bring home coloring pages and crafts that they did that day. I was telling Chris that, while I love to see their creativity, the quality of art projects at their school seem to be lacking. Anyway, I was cleaning up my kitchen and I was throwing away a huge stack of stuff they had brought home, when I found a few I would share. Above you see a self protrait of Ryan. Have you ever seen "The Ring"? I told myself that the second that picture says "Seven Days", I'm burning it. Ryan also always draws a belly button on everyone she draws! Notice the big black dot in the middle of her belly.
Now this is more like it.....nice, cheery, springy....I thought it was cute.
Now this is a bird feeder, made out of an old milk jug, Reagan made in her class. They stuck a bunch of foam stickers on it and they even gave her a little bag of bird seed too....bless their hearts. I think I'm going to hang it up next to the Soda Can Wind Spinner my dad gave me.
Thanks Dad!

You actually made me laugh out loud at seven in the morning. This is not an easy task! Great post!

I agree. Definitely "fine art." Because Cora is in preschool also, I too have a similiar collection. I hang the "masterpieces" on the girl's playroom wall, but the rest will live out their exsistence in a landfill somewhere! Cute stuff though!

The self portrait! I am laughing out loud! And I love the belly button! Please ask her to draw a picture of me. I want to know what I look like through her eyes....

Oh Edna,
I LOVE your posts, they are so funny. Phil and I LOST it on the "Pat's a tool" one. I can't believe you will be 29, I will be 30 this year. It feels like yesterday that we were in Vegas sans kids and having fun. The week Phil turned 30 he hurt his back playing basketball, he got tons of "that b/c your old" comments.
