Sanaa's art

Earlier this spring Sanaa took an art class through our park & rec. She loved it. She also had a really good teacher. Each week they focused on a different artist. Their last class was at a New Seasons grocery store where their teacher briefly talked about what they had studied and then let the kids talk about some of their paintings. The store hung up some of the paintings the kids had worked on during the year. The paintings were up for a month.

Sanaa currently loves pandas. Not only did she paint a panda during her class she also made one out of clay.

Sanaa pointing out which pictures she painted to one of the guests at the store.

Sanaa's elephant painting.

The second wall of paintings that held more from the class.

Sanaa pointing out her panda and answering her teacher's question about why she chose a panda. I thought Sanaa would get really shy speaking in front of everyone but she wasn't at all!

Some pictures of Malakai

Just a few random pictures of Malakai. He drew a heart while we were walking to school one morning. It wasn't too bad for his first attempt!

When I dropped him off at school he showed me how he acted like a unicorn!

It may be time for a haircut when you wake up looking like this! It took a lot of water to get his hair to lay back down.

Merlin and the kids

Merlin is typically our cat that hides from the kids. But recently he has actually started sitting with and snuggling up to the kids. One evening Sanaa sat on the floor and Merlin walked over and crawled into her lap. I honestly thought it was Keldorn but it turned out to be Merlin in her lap. The kids have been very excited that Merlin isn't so scared of them.
