The other best part of my day was taking the girls to pick up some pottery Mimi and I had painted at a local pottery place. You never know exactly what it will look like once it's fired, so that's part of the fun. I love, love, LOVE seeing my artistic daughter's work. She's so amazing. Here are our before and afters:
This is her Crying girl. She's crying and smiling, and kind of like the Mona Lisa, it's up to the viewer to decide why...
This one she drew for a contest recently.
The Hubs took Mimi to Starbucks the other morning, and she drew this on the napkins. Amazing, right?
While she was doing all of that and something for each nephew, I did this:
For the record, it's just one mug with three leaves painted on it. And yes, I painted one thing in the time it took Mimi to paint 5. Even the girl who worked there said she was fast.
So the best parts of my day today? Seeing all my kids playfully competing against each other at grammar and seeing the fruits of our labor at the pottery place.
