Have I mentioned how much I love it when something newsworthy happens right in front of me? When we pulled up at home yesterday evening I noticed this after-school art class at the elementary school down the street. Ezra and I were equally interested in the project. A dozen or so kids, a few moms, and some art and photography(!) teachers were painting street murals on the schoolyard retaining wall.
How freaking cool is that?
When we moved into our house this school was so dismal the district had blown out the entire staff, down to the janitors, and started from scratch. That wasn't especially concerning to us since, you know, we didn't have any kids. But now we have a kid and, happily, the school is undergoing a rebirth. Yes, I'm congratulating myself on good timing. But I couldn't get too busy patting myself on the back because I had to take pictures.
