Spring Art's Night

Last week after work, the kids and I walked over to the school to see the Spring Art's night. Both Max and Sophie had artwork on display in the hallways and Sophie had an additional one in a glass case (a drawing of a preying mantis). It is always so much fun to go and see them show off their art work, because they are so very proud of what they have made.

This year the school used the evening as a fundraiser and each classroom donated gift baskets to be raffled during the evening. I put together the basket for Sophie's classroom this year and also donated a gift basket full of jewelry and hair clips and pins for the silent auction.

The kids favorite part of the evening were the vendors set up outside and the live music playing - their principal even got up to sing a couple of times. The kids snacked on hamburgers, mini donuts and ice cream and visited with their friends before walking home again. Beautiful weather, very fun evening and a successful fundraiser for the school.


  1. I want that necklace! Oh how I want it! :)

  2. I found the beads at a year sale and then just attached one of my clips.
