For a little while now I’ve wanted to get some finger paints for Eva. They certainly have changed since I was a kid. When I was a kid there were 4 colors (Yellow, Red, Blue, Green) in little plastic containers. Now the Crayola finger paints are in little plastic tubes and come in 4 colors (Orange, Green, Purple, Teal). These are more like gels and when swirled together they do make colors like yellow and red. They are fascinating actually.
So we put Eva in an old t-shirt of mine and taped some paper to the dining room table. From there I squeezed out the 4 colors on the paper and let Eva have at it. She was tentative at first and then started playing around and having fun. It was a good little exercise in creativity. However she ended up ripping the paper and so we don’t really have a photo of what the final creation looked like. For now her scribbles and finger paints are for her to have fun and keep occupied. Eventually she’ll stop ripping the paper and we can take photos of her work.
This morning we went over to church to help set up for a bake sale. Allison is one of the people in charge of our Relay for Life team. Because of this she has different events planned to help raise money for the team’s donation. The bake sale was one of them and Allison made 5 loaves of banana bread. Let me tell you, I am glad that the bananas are finally out of the freezer. I kinda have an anti-banana thing. They did a great job raising money though and All of Allison’s bread was sold too and at the 1st Mass they made $200.00.
After Mass I caught up with Fr. Dave and gave him the copy of Combinations that I bought for the school (my old grade school) and the youth group (the one I started in High School). It was a signed copy too, thanks Ed Gerety!
