Time for some Family Art - Project 52 - Week 47

I nearly blogged about the rain (again) - when will it ever stop? It seems to have been raining without much letup all year. However it's hardly news and I am so bored by it. Taking photos in the rain and wind is tricky and I have not been inspired (or had much time!)

Bizarrely I decided to go to school to spend some quality time with my children. It is hard to do this at home at the moment as every moment is spent catching up on chores (and the odd blog post!). The school advertised a Family Art Workshop and although Little Miss Sunshine was officially too young for it in Reception they let her in as long as I was there. I didn't really know what to expect but it was actually really good fun. Yes I did have to help youngest quite a lot but there was still plenty that she could do.Most importantly for the girls I was not trying to do anything else at the same time and I was actually joining in. It helped that I didn't need to stress about the mess either - glitter all over the floor - who cares - it was the school floor not mine and I am sure their floor is used to it!

Although this was only an hour or so out of our week it was a very important hour. Here is what the group made - a little street of colourful, sparkly houses as individual as their creators - I thought they were rather fabulous and it really was fun!!
