More art classes

This month’s “Thomas the Tank Engine” classes have proved quite interesting so far.  Unni created template designs then printed / painted cards from those templates.  I’m still not quite sure how they made these, but they’re quite neat.

Symphony night

Mom and Unni dressed up and hit the city!  Unni’s violin teacher plays with the symphony orchestra and kindly offered us tickets.  Our seats were great — front row and center of the lower balcony.  No heads to peer around, no neck turning to actually see the orchestra, and best of all… excellent people watching from our seats.  The featured violinist was ahhhmazing!  She literally danced with her violin as she made it sing and throw notes. We were in awe. Everyone around us was in awe.  The orchestra playing around her was in awe.  Even the conductor was in awe.  At the intermission we found our beloved teacher and said a quick hi before heading home.  The late night became even later with a treat of ice cream!




Frozen art class part I

Unni was so excited to learn about the Frozen art classes (three sessions) offered this winter.  The first week the children created Olaf out of white model clay, with twigs for arms and an orange nose.


First violin recital

Unni performed in her first recital last week. Despite the jitters which she didn’t display while on stage, she played “Twinkle” beautifully! Happy her aunt could be in the audience, too.

Unni loves her teacher, Miss Erica!


Kindergarten registration

Yesterday we took the girls to our neighborhood elementary school to register for kindergarten.  It’s totally unbelievable that our baby is almost ready to start school.  Time does fly, and it’s going faster! The girls posed for photos as we headed out the door to commemorate the momentous occasion.

Our little cooker

She really, really loves to get her hands into food, this time peanut chicken.  So, we’ll encourage it as long as we can!
