We negotiate and bribe each other to get OUR movie selected as the movie of the night.
We eat dinner, get all ready for bed (skip the teeth brushing), haul our sleeping bags and pillows down to the living room, volley for the perfect viewing angle, and enjoy some hot popcorn as we watch the flick of the night.
It's a fun night.
This past Friday was a busy one! (It was Culture Day, after all.)
When Nate brings home anything art-related from school it is an unfinished, monochromatic, abstract piece of work.
When the girls bring home an art project it is a piece of wonder ... something they put thought and effort and time into.
On Friday when we had "Culture Day" Nate was the least thrilled with the idea of going to the Art Museum. However, I was supremely surprised when he whipped out his sketch book and started trying to draw what he saw.
I was even more surprised when we got home and he pulled out the crayons and coloring pages and actually colored a picture.
