Last time Nelle had her art class was before Christmas and the next time the Art School opened was on Monday 8th of January! This period without the Art School was hard for Nelle and me! She asked 100 times – When will the school open!?
For example, on Monday they have to paint a picture on a sandpaper using crayons! I would never think of that :). The print they had to paint is famous Latvian painter Irbīte’s artwork.
I try to do my best and involve my girls in cooking, cleaning, feeding the cat, etc. but Nelle likes being in the Art School and does everything without hurry! Here at home, we have Helmī that will grab Nelles pencils and run away! Disturb Nelle, by adding scribbles on Nelles works. The reason why we don’t have felt pens at home is Helmī! She grubs them and run, like to paint on walls, and floors and scribble on a table, etc… I can’t be with Helmī all the time, and she doesn’t learn to behave with felt pens. So, no felt pens in this house until Helmī gets a bit bigger… So Nelle enjoys peace and harmony that is at the Art School!
After getting home from Art School, other two girls isn’t home, so we have usual mother-daughter chat with tea and cookies!
