Background paintings for the 5th grade play

Okay, I was at the airport getting ready to leave for Arizona when I received a phone call from the school. It was a lady helping with the title one 5th graders. They wanted a few background for their play on Literacy Night the following week. I told them that I would do it but I wouldn't be back until Monday. Of course I didn't know that I'd catch a cold while I was gone. So I ended up getting a copy of the play and the drawings from the kids on Monday then I stretched out what I was going to paint. Tuesdays I spent all day painting and finished the bean stalk, forest, castle tower, picket signs and TV. Today I got the news station and desk signs painted and added some glitter. Then we took them to the school so they are ready for the kids to use for dress rehearsal and the play tomorrow night. It was a very quick project and I didn't have time to add to much detail but the kids were super excited about them. Looking forward to seeing the play.

Our new college graduates.

This weekend my parents, sister and I flew to Flagstaff, Arizona to see my brother Cody and his girlfriend Marisa graduate from Northern Arizona University. Cody graduated with a B.S. in Business Management with a major in Finance and Marisa graduated with a B.S. in Early Childhood Development. We had a nice visit and got to meet Marisa's family.

NAU's graduation. Cody was on stage but was hard to see.

The twenty pounds of candy bars in my carry-on luggage for this card was probably why I had a hard time going through the airport security. :)

Grandma Jane's Birthday Party

We all got together to celebrate Grandma Jane's 92nd birthday at our house. We had a nice BBQ and the weather was sunny even if it wasn't super warm. She had a nice time seeing some of her great grand children, opening presents and eating chocolate cupcakes.
