Clowning Around



The kids all seemed to wake up with a punchy spirit today. Luckily they found a creative outlet! Vivienne pulled out our Artemis natural face paints and the fun began. Here is the visual tale of Vivienne and Mia the clowns, and Jasper the clown puppy. Later the theme changed to "the chimney sweep, the moon, and the little red robin hood" and finally Vivienne became a witch. It helped that the kids attended a balloon workshop at the library last week- the balloon hats all popped but we still have tons of little balloons floating about.


























Some years ago, it was me dressing up with my little sister, Amy and cousin Nathan. It is fun to see the same passion live on in my own kids! After the neighborhood clown parade, we plan to make cucumber sandwiches and get out of the house for a bit.

Beautiful, simply great! I love what kids can come up with when left to their own imagination... So many kids imagination is scheduled right out of them, they are so so busy... Glad to see it is far from the case at your house! Thanks for sharing this beautiful moment of grace!
