Today was day 2 of Carr camp.
YAYE! Woohoo!!! YAHOO!!!!
It has been fun so far.
I am exhausted by the end of the day.
It is hard work worrying about the safety of other people's children.
Today we went to one of my favorite places.
HOPE Outdoor Gallery is a fantastic venue where street artist and muralist (and many other artists) can do their thing.
The kids hiked about in the 1 million degree heat and then I let them bust out the spray paint.
I am not sure it is okay to spray paint there without permission.
I did send an email to ask - and didn't receive a response.
So before we left the house today, we sat around the table and talked about what symbol best represents you or something you enjoy?
We drew each of their ideas out on a piece of paper and gathered up all of the old cans of spray paint in our garage.
I am really proud because all of the kids had vision and they helped each other.
I love that as we were driving away from HOPE today, the kids were in the back of the car having a discussion about how hard spray paint art actually is.
I am thrilled because none of the kids had ever done anything like that before.
I feel like they all walked away very pleased with what they created.
And I think we had another successful day of learning from and loving our community.
And ya just can't be that!
