The Artist's Summer...

Older daughter has had a busy summer, not all of it good. Poor girl has had some toe issues and is recovering from minor surgery on her big toe.  She'll be good to go for the start of school next month.

She completed and passed Driver's Ed. With some more practice, she might get licensed this spring. She did get her permit,

and that meant going to Stillwater

which means a stop at Eskimo Joe's. Yum!

For the last few weeks I have been taking her to Edmond for art classes. She likes it, even though all the other students are adults. She hasn't learned anything that she already knows, but is enjoying the time to just paint and be with other artists. 

Her talent and knowledge still delights me. 

Who knew this 

would eventually be this?

Oh my. That is such a cute painting. They are babies such a very short time. I'm glad she is enjoying the art class.
