My Loves

My boys (ages 11 & 8) took a free painting class from a friend of ours.  They weren't thrilled at first but I knew they would like it once they started painting.  My older son, Jared, is taking art in middle school this semester so this was a wonderful opportunity for him to use the skills he's learning.

They did a fantastic job on their paintings and I'm so proud of them.  They were very proud of themselves too.  We plan to hang up their paintings in their rooms.  It's so cool that they can have their own original art work decorating the walls of their bedrooms.

This morning, Jared took a picture of his painting and emailed it to his family members with a Happy Valentine's Day message.  I didn't even know he had done it until I saw my email.  So SWEET!  These are my LOVES!

Who are your loves?

Happy Valentine's Day!



  1. Aw that's adorable. It must be nice to have two built-in, forever Valentine's! I've always wanted to take one of these kinds of painting classes where everyone creates the same one but each is unique and different. Very cool!

  2. Aw they are too cute! I love painting and seeing young ones express themselves through using their right side of the brain!


Talk to me!
