the carnival has come to town...


is it the first week of may already? yes it is…carnival has come and gone…and the school year is coming to an end. this year i chaired the art arena booth at maelee’s school…again. i tell you…there is nothing like seeing the whole community come together…and making this event happen for the children. you should see their faces. everyone is exuberant with energy…winning prizes, getting faces painted, cracking confetti eggs and then taking a break and creating in the art booth. next year i’ll actually be chairing the whole carnival…so if any of my mommas happen across this post…you might want to grab your booth for next year;)
