It's Friday and it's been quite a busy week here.
The last week of school is always JAM packed full of events for our family....
Wow, we haven't stopped!
So, today, we are home...doing
NOTHING...
YAY, and the best part?
It's Friday,
Here is a little something I am working on...

you may recognize Wilbur and Charlotte from one of my favorite book's,
Charlotte's Web.
I am hoping to finish this today!

I can't wait to see what you are all up to!

Yeah for NOTHING!!! I am a great big fan of nothing, since it never happens in our house. Crushing on your Wilber, he has such a sweet look on his face. Have a great weekend, and I hope it is filled with NOTHING!

Aw-w! My favorite story from 4th grade. My teacher read it to us in class. We were mesmerized by the story. You are doing a good job on the illustration.

Oh what a beautiful little piggy. When I was young we lived on a ranch with piggies and I loved them so and how they screeched. I loved holding them and feeling their warm stomachs. Great job on your piece.
Have a great "oink oink" weekend. Tee hee.:))

Charlotte's Web has always been a favorite of mine too, and I'd say Wilber would be pleased with your painting. Happy PPF and have a great weekend.
