Nick's First Grade Art

Nick's art teacher is amazing. I have never seen an art show like the one at Springville. It amazes me how she saves all the students art for display and then has a night for parents to come and see it all. Here is Nick's first grade year in art. AMAZING!

Collograph Prints---

Venetian Masks---

Patterned Calaveras

Dia de los Muertes mask--

Aztec suns--

My personal favorite- Frida Kahlo inspired---

Painted Serape Designs---

Nick's pottery of a bird (we think!!!)

We are truly going to miss Springville.  What an amazing school.

Nate and the Aquarium

Nate has been to the aquarium a ton in the past few months but these pictures capture his excitement at the new exhibit they have for the little ones. Here he is!

Touching the stingrays
Nate will pose anywhere for a picture!
There is absolutely no prompting!
This is my favorite!  Hello angelfish!

Spring Break

We spent a couple of days in DC over Spring Break. We went to the Smithsonian's Natural History Museum and the boys enjoyed seeing the dinosaurs. The highlight was the Butterfly Exhibit. The kids had a great time and it was such a fun experience!
Getting ready to see the museum!
The butterflies were amazing!

We loved the big blue ones!

Each picture captured their excitement!

Sadly I didn't get pictures of the other friends we got to see. We were blessed to see good friends and give lots of hugs and kisses. Thank you for the fun times guys! We love you!
