Wednesday tag..

1. My daughter2 is graduating from university this month and plans to teach elementary school. What are three qualities you most want to see evidenced in a teacher?

Passion to encourage kids to ENJOY learning - not focusing on test results and expectations, but on installing a LOVE of learning into each and every child they teach.

2. You can tell a lot about a person by

  How they deal with the bad days as opposed to the good.  Also in the way they treat service staff!!

3. What song makes you think spring?

Here Comes The Sun - the version from Bee Movie :)  

4. May 1st is Mother Goose Day...share your favorite nursery rhyme.

Hickory Dickory Dock.

5. What makes someone unforgettable?

The way they made me feel.

6. Should music and/or art be part of a well rounded education?

Of course!!!!  But it is more important to follow a child's interests...yet they need to experience these things in their lives to find their passion - and then follow it - so the more they are introduced to in the amazing world, the better.

7. What social situations make you flustered and nervous?

first days - in classes, jobs...I wouldn't say they make me 'flustered' but nervous yes.  

8. Insert your own random thought here

This evening has just flown by - can't believe how fast it went!  How can it be bedtime already???

Our Wednesday

Our green smoothies were rather pink today because of all the berries and fruit in them.  There IS spinach in there though!!!  It was a yummy way to kick off the day!
Susannah is still sick so this is very good for her!  

On the way in to town this afternoon we spotted this very tasteful truck with SILVER testicles hanging from the back of it.  So nice hahahaha - I've seen the normal flesh coloured ones lots of times, but SILVER?????  omg!!!

We met a group of friends at the park for a couple of hours - Abby and Sam got to play frisbee and hang out at the playground with their friends - quite a few of them - so they were happy.  Laurence walked over to meet us after school (it was early out today so school ended at 2pm) and then we had to head to the library for 3pm as Abby had a class there that she was signed up for.  

While Abby was in her class, Susannah filled in an application to volunteer at the library throughout the summer.  She wanted to volunteer as a reading buddy as well, but that is only on for a week and it is while we are away.  She is also hoping to get some volunteer work every weekend from now on - so she is making inquiries. 

Me.  I soooo need a hair cut.
I found a ton of books for Abby and Sam....then did some art journaling 
and read the local paper:

Sam played on the computers and then came and sat with us for a while until it was time to go:

After the library we had to run to the bank for Laurence, and while there, Abby went to check and see if our stone we had left near the parking lot had been picked up.  It was GONE!  So we know at least ONE of our stones has been found and picked up :)  
We have a lot more we want to paint and leave in places for people to find - it's a lovely feeling to know they are out there somewhere :)  

Tonight I helped Susannah with her LA homework....Abby drew a parrot and did some reading from the library books she picked up today.  

Sam watched a movie and pottered about.  Oh and I cut the grass for a while when we got home and tidied up the front yard a bit - all the kids went out on their bikes and cycled up and down the driveway while I was cutting the grass.  

I did some art journaling and pottered about...some it's almost bedtime again. 

Hope your Wednesday was a good one!  I'm looking forward to Thursday as we have plans all day and all evening.  Fun fun fun :)  

29 faces in May - day 3

I'm doing more than one face a day right now, but I am loving the challenge of creating different faces and trying new things.  I'm trying to move on from doing eyes closed all of the time - and trying eyes well as a side view of a face - that was challenging and I used a website for tips on how to draw a face from the side.  I am loving this art journal so much - even though it's just a $1. note book from Dollarama - there is something about it that I really like - the paper maybe...the rings...I don't know but right now I am preferring it to my Moleskines and composition books.  I only grabbed it because I liked the cover!!
