Happy Birthday, Elyse!
"I made this message for you." -Jack
Thank you all so very much for sending along a touching happy birthday song or message for Elyse! So sweet and beautiful they all were, and she felt the love from every child!
A Rodriguez Family Tradition
Last Friday we rolled up our sleeves! We also took off our shoes and covered ourselves in a trash bag and a smock. All this so that we could keep tidy while we painted a wooden box with acrylic paint. The paint we typically use at the easel is tempera paint. Tempera is a water based paint and washes out easily. Acrylic is not water-based; it does not wash out so easily. Working in groups of two, the children were polite and patient with working with each other and waiting their turn. They also were relatively successful in keeping tidy. Here's to small successes! And did they have fun? Of course they did! Just look through the slide show. And now we have a box painted by the Brown Room.
