Musings of a mother/scuba instructor/graphic designer/musical entrepreneur. Totally in love with my husband (Two Fish) of ten years. We have two beautiful daughters (Red Fish and New Fish) and a nutty dog (Blue Fish) who help make our family complete and completely happy. W have learned to expect the unexpected and are always up for an adventure.
I am enthusiastic about living and learning. I love people who make me laugh. I have an ironic appreciation for the unique and absurd. I am an enthusiastic and untalented tap dancer with a love for new Christmas ornaments,art, the outdoors,the water, music, good books, skiing, and travel. My greatest calling in life is to be a Mom. I LOVE it!
Every summer I ask my kids if we really need to do art group this summer. I don't know that I thought it would be a permanent fixture of our summer when I started but my kids are alway incredulous when I ask as if it wouldn't be summer without art group so we begin again. This year I decided to do two groups, one for the younger kids including my tiniest nieces and an older group. We started with a liquid watercolor resist project for the bigs. We used masking tape, salt and oil pastels to resist the watercolor. The littles used texas snowflakes with the liquid watercolors. Always a hit. It is going to be fun to do some of the little kid projects again. I've missed them. I am raising my kids in tandem. There are just the two of them and they are so close in age that I feel like we only go through each stage once before we are moving on to another stage. It is delightful because I get to fully immerse myself in each stage with them but I also wish we could redo and slow down some of the stages.
