1st day of (pre)school

oh my goodness, I totally said I wasn’t going to cry but of course I did. I took my bean to his first day of school. He was totally into his school supplies, all the paper work was filled out we had gone to the open house and somehow he was thinking I’d be with him the whole time :) No crying, he went off to play, I grabbed him gave him a huge kiss told him how much I loved him and then, left. It was really hard and I stood there for a moment and ALMOST went back in for another kiss, but it’s about him not me and we’re making a happy adult right! Not a sentimental mom :) Anway it’s big wheels


and school (three afternoons a week, it’s not like he’s off to college!)


he told every one tonight, “mommy just left me there, all alone” but he had fun, he painted a jelly fish (I’ll add a pic later maybe) and drank a juice box and is making friends!

I still keep a blog, it's consistently regularly updated but not often. I like it because I can go back almost 10 years and see how I've grown and changed as an artist and how my studio has changed along with me.
