On Monday, I photographed Jordan working with her oil pastels. You'll notice Jordan has a very hard grip and I think it was due to the music I had playing. Sometimes I play various music in the background when the girls are doing art to influence their work/mood. This time Beethoven's Wig was on and I believe Can-Can in particular during this picture. It's a lively tune and I think that influence the hard & quick strokes she was making. Anyway, it's a great series for introducing kids to classical music and it's a fun sing-a-long for parents too...plus it's very catchy. Our county library has several copies.
On Tuesday, I caught this shot of daddy reading to Jordan her bedtime story.....Olivia & The Missing Toy.
No picture taken on Wednesday.
On Thursday, I attended a presentation on Montessori Education, specifically geography/cultural studies. I took this picture of the lovely school as I was leaving. (more to come about this school in a separate post)
Friday, we went out for dinner & I had this delicious wheat pasta w/ shrimp & asparagus.
Then we headed over to VMFA to see their Ancient Ife exhibit (it was leaving on Sunday).
I'm wrapping this post up early to include some of the pictures on the upcoming post- Alex's birthday weekend (5/20-5/22)!
