Visual Arts Contest

School events in the post-covid era are still a little lacking during the 2021-2022 school year. Fully masked and vaccinated, Little Miss braved an art competition though.

And she was awarded two “Superior” ratings and one “Excellent” rating for her entries.

Basically the top marks she could get without then being sent to the state level competition!

Egg Coloring 2022

It was a very busy but fun Easter this last year. For some reason I feel like attributes were rushed but at the same time it feels a  little “less” this year. Maybe because TJ wasn’t with us. I mean, he stopped by, but it was the first family holiday that came about where he was fully and officially moved out.

They still got to show off their creations though.

New Year’s 2021: The Food Hovering

Naturally with so much food out, everybody has gathered around to graze and enjoy what’s there and available.

In Little Miss’ hands on the right you can also see that we’re slowly getting ready for the next part of the tradition: board game night.

Settling in With Christmas (2011)

With everything opened, it was time for the kids to scatter and go make use of their new items.

Thunderer greatly appreciated her new playdoh, for example.

Superman was caught actually reading too!

And I don’t care that it’s a comic. It’s still reading. Deal with it.

Halloween 2021: The Trio

And then there were three:

Oddly Newbie appears to have snuck past without getting a solo shot. My assumption is that they got tired of us taking pictures and the end result was us hurrying with this shot instead.

If you’re unfamiliar with Newbie’s costume, she’s Amity Blight from the Disney show Owl House.

We’d originally ordered her costume. In fact, her’s was the first costume we ordered. Thanks to supply chain issues though, it simply never arrived. Fortunately Snow/Little Miss stepped in and helped craft some pieces for Newbie to still pull off the look while she made the staff herself.

Productivity Blocker

One thing Little Miss has found she does with her desk is steal my tablet, set up to sew, and watch something on netflix.

Big Red decided she wasn’t going to do any more sewing on this day, however.

I guess this is as decent a post as any to mention how the sausage is made here on the blog too, not that I get many comments or readers, but I want to write about it, so I will.

Clearly my mind suffers from some sort of OCD or something because it’s convoluted, bear with me. 😉

“Ar” Eyepatches

Newbie’s eye was accidentally scratched by Fireball. It was a pretty bad scratch at the end of the day so we took her in. It was an officially scratched cornea.

Little Miss crafted an eyepatch for her in record time to help her remember not to rub it and cut down on the sensitivity.

Well, a few days into her having one I was approached to join a new D&D game so Little Miss again went to work and whipped one up for me for entirely different reasons (yay for wearing small bits of a costume on the D&D stream.)

Naturally a little sister decided to photobomb, but it was a welcome addition to our picture.
