I am trying to be diligent on updating my blog but I feel like my life is so uneventful. As busy as we are as a family, we try to spend a lot of time with each other. It's been so weird to have 3 of our children in school . Mornings are so hectic for me. I can't imagine doing everything that is required of me without Lulu. I am so grateful ot have her. Buffy is enjoying 2nd grade and still loves school and thrives on new knowledge. I was so surprised when she came home and asked me if I have ever heard of a Dutch artist named Vincent Van Gogh. She then proceeded to tell me all about him and his great works. She told me that her favorite paintings of his are of the Sunflowers and The Starry Night. We even have had discussions on Leonardo Da Vinci. She asked me about the Mona Lisa at the L'Ouvre and if I noticed her smile. As an art lover and a greater love for history, I am just thrilled that my daughter is showing much enthusiasm towards the arts and history. Saturday, we went to the museum down in San Diego and there was a exhibit on Leonardo Da Vinci. I took Buffy through it showing her all the models from his drawings and some of his painting, including the Mona Lisa. It was a great experience for her to actually see some of the sample works of Da Vinci. I do hope that her thirst for these two subjects continues as she advances through school.
