WooooooooooBaby! Celebrate! Earth Day, Comin' Up!

Macy and Katie felt the urge to paint this afternoon, so I let them dig through the drawers of acrylic paints and pick their own palettes. They went for the brights, the pinks, the purples, the pretties. My favorite part of Katie's paint palette is the swirled blues and greens, definitely nice for representing the Earth :)

This is Macy's palette of colors. Gotta love the way she mixed bright pink and plain orange to make superatomicbrightandlively orange.

Kate's painting for wrapping around her recycled planting container. The kids are all supposed to bring a milk jug or tin can to use for planting some seeds tomorrow. Kate and Macy plan on using their recycled pieces of brown paper bag to decorate their containers.

Macy's Earth Day painting includes a cute touch-- the "y" at the end of "day" is heart shaped.
James has been busy avoiding the presence of the girls, so no Earth Day painting from him yet. In about an hour and a half, we'll all leave for the movies. Katie, Macy, Aleah, and I are going to see the Hannah Montana movie, while James, Dylan, Justin, and Ricky are going to watch Monsters versus Aliens. Guess I'd better get back to macaroni and cheese making. . .gots some hungry children waiting on hot dogs and mac 'n cheese. Hmmph, not to mention the boy versus girls battles that require my services as referee! Toodles for now!
