Exploring Our Creative Side

So here we are at the beginning of another week. We didn’t have quite the same level of activity this week as we have in prior weeks, but we still had fun.

Hallie, Priscilia, and the little ones went to Detroit Kid City in Southfield. In a mini play city, Landon and Eliza used their imaginations to pretend at an automotive factory, bank, barber shop, post office, pizzeria, music studio, art center, school house, out in the country.

Among other things, Landon explored careers in fishing and hair styling:

Eliza contemplated her future as a pop diva.

On Saturday, Mike and Landon continued to explore Landon’s creative side by finger painting.

Thinking about what to do with the paintings as they dried, Mike remembered a creative idea for the home he’d seen on Pinterest, a gallery wall

Here’s our version, with more art to follow: 

Not quite as sophisticated, but it gets the job done.

Mike and Hallie had an opportunity to explore art of another sort when Ben and Megan invited them to the Detroit Opera House to see Bizet's "The Pearl Fishers." Beautiful venue, and beautiful performance!
