and we set out to get the kitchen table set up with the painting mat and the girl was so ready to paint. i love the notion of painting kids, am very aware of the implication of paints out and so i stood by and enjoyed every moment of it. sometimes it takes me a bit of courage to get us all into paints, but not today. and i'm excited to see those paintings, being drawn on to and taped and all so happy and full of energy.
look at the portrait of papa joel!
