Daddy's Art Class
Since I have to go to class 3 nights a week K and the kids have been spending their afternoons and evenings together. They've been having a lot of fun (and fun is good, right Dr. Suess?). They've been shooting with bows and arrows. They've been practicing reading. They've been playing Wii games. And they've been having Daddy art class. The kids are enrolled in an after school art class that meets once a week. Holdyn took one session of this class last year and loved it. This year we've been less than enthused (the teacher changed) but we've payed for 7 (non-refundable) lessons each so art class it is. Anyway, Daddy's art class is awesome. K loved to draw as a kid and so do our 3. They've learned to draw cartoons like Dora and Wubzzy. Holdyn, who is currently on a STAR-WARS kick, has particularly enjoyed learning how to draw a battle droid and R2-D2. I think K should teach their art class, the pieces they've produced with him far exceed those from their actual "class." Needless to say, we have only two lessons left and we will not renew. Daddy's art class is way better in many ways. But, isn't that how it should be? Even if he was only teaching them to draw stick figures and happy faces thinks of the memories they are making (for free)!
