Characters, indeed

The big kids get to go to camp once a week for the whole summer this year. It gets them out of the house with their peers, away from the (dare I say) boredom of summertime with Mom and the little girls.  At camp they get a swimming lesson and usually a field trip somewhere they’d normally not get to go.  I purposefully chose the days to send them based on the field trips offered (the aquarium instead of a local farm, for instance).  Today’s activity, however, was held on site.  A caricature artist came to camp and drew pictures of the kids.  I thought this would be fun for them as well as for Ray and I — what great keepsakes for all of us!

These are the masterpieces.   Interestingly, though not surprisingly, Mitzi, our budding artist, came home and starting drawing caricatures in her journal, big-headed people doing different things, like riding horses or playing soccer or just looking fancy.   If you’d like one of yourself, just let us know.   Her fees are reasonable!

  1. WOW! She caught them at their best. I hope you get them framed and hung on your wall. They’re GREAT.

    You should get 1 done. I loved to see her interpertation of you and your life. Mother, Bus Driver, Cook, Author, Teacher, Wife, Best Friend, too many to add. Perhaps a collage of the above would be the perfect [icture.

    When does MOM get to go to Camp?
