Spring Break is Over!

We had our Spring Break this past week. I'm not sure I was as organized with my free-time as I am when we are home schooling. Oh well, it was a nice break even if the "spring" weather didn't cooperate! (We even had a little snow.......SO ready for warmer weather!)

For Spring Break week, our local library held "Tech Week" for middle schoolers and up. My youngest, "B", along with my husband attended a class on "Stop Motion Animation" and learned how to make a movie with their clay creations. My older son, "E" didn't get to go, but I think there may be a future collaboration with his brother! "E" loves to sculpt and "B" loves the techno side of things. Here is "B's movie he made during the class (just so you know, it is a WORM!) lol!

(Hope you can view it. I've never used the "upload a movie" feature on blogger.They took over 50 photos just for this little movie!)


This week I was finally able to pull out all of my new supplies from Golden and PLAY! I'll post some of those creations soon. It was fun to experiment and see what each gel and medium would do. And while I was getting my hands messy, I was listening to music on Pandora.
Have you seen this website? Once you select an artist you like, it "customizes" a playlist for you...kinda neat! If you have this, or sign up for it, email me and we can exchange "stations"!

Now it is back to reality and routines......can't wait for summer!

Hi Suzanne,

Spring break is next week for us and boy are we ready! Savanna had her SAT test and then the following week she had the Georgia High School Graduation tests everyday! She is tested out!

The film is great!. It's amazing how much work goes into a few seconds of film! I'll have to show Savanna - you know she wants to be an animator. I wish our library had some good programs for her! She's been taking some classes on Saturday at SCAD (Savannah School of Art & Design).

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Manuela
