Carnival of Arts

Tonight, Landon and I attended the Carnival of Arts at his school. It was somewhat like the Festival of Arts that we went to over the weekend, but on a smaller scale since it was his school only.

They had several things for the kids to do but Landon was only interested in a couple of the activities.

First, he got his face painted:



Then we headed down the hall to play with the musical instruments…but the band teacher hadn’t shown up yet, so instead we watched a volunteer play an African drum:


Landon didn’t take a turn on the drum, but he did enjoy watching some of his classmates give it a try. Once we were done there, we headed to the gym to watch a martial arts presentation:

The martial arts demo was by far Landon’s favorite thing. He enjoyed it so much in fact, that he asked if we could stay for the second demonstration…which we did. Immediately following the show he asked if he could try a class, and I am thinking about signing him up for a summer camp to give it a try.

There were several other activities for the kids to do, but Landon wasn’t too interested in any of the art projects or story telling sessions, so we headed home.

I’m hoping tomorrow night we won’t have anything to do; a night at home sounds like a real good idea right about now!

Water Balloons

When my kids told me they didn't know what to do with themselves yesterday I suggested they go outside and play with the water balloons....
