We wanted to do this shopping trip right, and make sure that we had enough time for Micah to do some looking around and make good decisions. So Micah has been very patient for the last couple of weeks, waiting for a good time for his daddy to take him to Hobby Lobby. And finally, today was the day!
I hear Micah was a very good shopper, managing to stay within his budget, with only 26 cents left to spare. :) He got some acryllic paint, some good paint brushes of all different sizes and angles, and an easel. This all went very well with some good artist pencils, a real sketch book, and some canvases that he had gotten from Aunt Jodi, Uncle Robert, Bonnie, BooBoo, and Yogi.
He was sooooo excited to show me when he got home. And I was sooooo excited that we were having a lazy kind of Saturday so that he was able to just dig right into all of it! :)
...and of course, Little Brother was right there watching and cheering him on...
...until he decided it was time to get out his own paints.
...and then Big Brother got his out, too!
Ready to see the first two masterpieces??
Little Blue Monster:
And a self-portrait. (We don't know why he wrote his name backwards, or even he's even realized that he did. He doesn't usually do that!)
Micah, we are so excited with you about your "real" artist supplies! It's pretty awesome to have all that stuff, because you know what? You are a real artist. We're so proud of you!
