We opted to sit out more sports until T-ball season again to try something new, classes at the Cary Art Center. Ben loved the their week long summer day camp. Mom has had to accept that his often large pieces of artwork are becoming permanent fixtures in most rooms. Solutions of how to tenderly throw out kids art accepted.
This as it seems like a double win to pair down the collection while letting him choose the most important. Showing to friends would be self esteem building, especially if he plays docent.
Interestingly there was a student there taking pictures for a school photography project involving landmarks in Cary. She came over and asked if she could include a picture the boys playing. Before she could finish telling me about the project, I looked at her and said, " just go for it."
Go for it is my moto with Ben (and Ian as well) on exploring new interests. I'm hoping in making the biggest mess possible they will discover a life long interest in the process.
