Yesterday morning Violet's school had a little ceremony for the "official end of of the school year". They gave out certificates and made a big deal about the 5 year olds moving onto Kindergarten next year. Of course school still goes on the rest of summer with lots of fun summer activites.

Hamming it up.

Violet came home with a drawing yesterday. In the car she was telling us who all the people were. She told us "this one is angry", though she didn't know why he was angry. I was quite impressed with her drawing the frowny unibrow.
The little line squiggle on top of the heads is hair. Apparently she knows how to draw comb overs. Oh, and one has a beard.

Kind of wish you could see more of her, but still a cute group pic.

I've wanted a new work table for my studio for some time now. The one I really like is from Potterybarn, but the price is outrageous. So I found some plans on line to build my own. So we bought all the lumber this weekend and started. The whole unit comes apart in three pieces which will make it easy to take down to the basement.

I still have a lot to do, but you get an idea of what it will look like. Maybe I can get it done by my birthday.
