Resting Up Again...

Once again, my chemo session has forced me to take time to rest this weekend...hopefully session #2 will be kinder to my body and spirit. I will stay positive and hope for the best...and follow my doctor's orders explicitly this time...fingers crossed.

Engine #5 in Gold...

"I Saw Engine #5 in Gold" by Charles DeMuth...we worked on this many layered, painted paper project today. The students really got into it once I explained the premise behind the painting. The fire engines came roaring off the black paper with their headlight ablazing...loved these results!

Had a wonderful birthday luncheon yesterday with my team at school...lots of great gifts...but the most interesting one was my "Dammit Doll"..I think she may come in very handy in the coming months as I navigate through chemo and radiation. But DAMMIT, by summer this better all be behind me!
Today our Pint Size Picasso Class studied the work of Norman Rockwell. Our project was inspired by his painting "The Connoisseur"...the kids loved having themselves put into their artwork.
