Last night we attended a prestigious art show for local artists. Young artists. Very young. Elementary-age artists.
My little Jackson was one of the artists:
My budding artist. He is very creative and loves to draw, cut, hole-punch, tape, staple, glue, decorate, embellish, and use every available medium to create pieces of art.
We are very happy for him that his piece was selected for display.
I finished a mailorder bonnet for Spenser. I was having a bad day a few days ago and decided I needed to sew for a few minutes to get in a better mood. It didn't help. I had massive lint in the shuttle, which resulted in my machine making loud, scary noises before it stopped working. After three attempts to clean it out, it started working again. Until operator error caused another problem, which resulted in an intense workout with the seam ripper. And then I quit. I was in a more discouraged mood than when I started.
I just finished it this morning. Spenser tried it on for 2 seconds and became suddenly bashful when I whipped out the camera.
Elbow Update: I am going to the doctors this afternoon. I'm hoping they just drain the darn thing. While it still feels warm from the outside, from the inside it feels cold. Totally freaky! I feel like I'm wearing an ice-pack on my elbow.

Carter's Girlfriend Update: When Carter came home from school on Wednesday, I asked him how Laura was. Very innocently he said, "Oh, I 'quit' on her." What a brief, whirlwind of a romance.
