Sharon has volunteered as the Art Docent for the afternoon Kindergarten class. She spent an hour and a half this afternoon teaching a lesson plan titled "Artists paint People." The lesson talked briefly about Thomas Sully, Edward Manet and Pierre Auguste Renoir. It highlighted a painting by each Artist: The Torn Hat by Sully [shown below]; A Girl with a Watering Can by Renoir and The Fifer by Manet. The lesson uses mirrors to have the kids look at themselves and then draw their portrait.

Afterwards, She spent two plus hours volunteering to work in the extended day program. She had some interesting insights about Jack's ability to run with much bigger kids. Jack is used to having to try and run with bigger kids: Drew and Morgan; Kevin, Erin, Eric and Eileen his cousins; the almanor crowd and Pat's son Ryan. Outside of daycare, he is almost always the youngest wherever we are, except for your kids Brun!
