Friends

Today my friends came over to play with me. We got out the washable paints and rubber stamps and brushes and paper and commenced with the fun. I couldn't resist sharing these pictures with you. My little friends shared with me that they love to make art in school. Well, of course they do. Everyone loves to make art.

This dear child is going to a new school this year but she already has two new friends and she said her teacher is nice so I am relieved for her. She has been my buddy for 3 years now. My heart swells when she comes to visit.

This is her adorable cry-baby sister. They say she cries but she has never cried at my house. She is a meticulous child and a wonderful painter of abstracts. Really. I wish I had her je nes see qwah.

She laboriously cleaned every single rubber stamp with a toothbrush. She scrubbed them clean. She matched each lid with the correct jar of paint. She is only 3 years old but already a patient, genius artist. I stare in awe.

And finally a crazy-azee journal page for your consideration. Oh life. You are such a wonder. Such a dream. Thank you for all the sweetness.

Did you paint that floor cloth? It is as lovely as the babes sitting on it playing are. Oh and as for coming unhinged. I like to do it often.
I do like how you so cleverly manage to hide your journal writing just enough so that all your secrets don't come tumbling out. Not that I don't want to know every last one, but I need to find a way to disguise mine. Perhaps yellow and green ink are the answer. I will consult with the blue woman oracle.

Had to take a closer look at that journal page...very cool. It's good to be a student! I think we're fooling ourselves if we ever think we know it all!
