A Blank Canvas Day

Paulie, Philip, Finn and I have a much appreciated do-nothing day.  The four of us are fortunate enough to have Veteran's Day off while Paul and Elizabeth have work and school respectively.  Elizabeth was not impressed, to say the least, that SHE still had school while most of us get to relax today.  I considered giving her a mental health day, but her class is practicing for their Sundiata play, which will be a coming blogpost, I am sure.

The boys painted ceramic animals this morning, Paulie and Philip with acrylics, Finn with finger paints.  Do finger paints stick to ceramic?  I have no idea, but I guess we'll find out!

Hats off to our veterans!  You are much appreciated during this season of thanksgiving!


  1. Sounds like a fun day. Perhaps the finger paints will stick to the ceramic better if you spray a coat of clear varnish on it after it's finished?

  2. How in the world did Finn finger paint and stay so clean??!! Hayden would have it EVERYWHERE!

  3. It turns out that finger paint does stick pretty well to ceramic. Who knew?

    Finn stayed relatively clean; we wore brown for a reason. :) Giving him a foam brush helped too.


I love to hear what you think!
