This morning our little family went to the Art Museum's family day and made an artwork like Monet's. It was fun. A got messy and wanted to run around most of the time. I worked on most of the artwork and K chased Little Man.
During the school year when I was teaching art I found a project to do with my kids that would help their self-esteem. In school there are lots of people who are going to talk about you and you have to be confident in who you are. In my classroom we made a radial symmetry project that looked like a pie or a pizza. In those triangles I had kids write words that described themselves. At the end of the project my kids could say, "My name is Jose Perez. I am eight, smart, funny, a good baseball player and a friend." So that if anyone says anything negative about you, Jose, you can say..."That's not true because my name is Jose Perez. I am eight, smart, funny, a good baseball player and a friend."
It looked something like this:

We also went to the library and I got this book which is pretty inspiring and I'm only on the first pages.
