  2. Thanks Kris! I really appreciate it.

  3. I tweeted about it today and I plan to mention it in my Weekly Wrap-up tomorrow…if I remember. Last week I made myself a specific note of something I wanted to mention in my Wrap-Up post and I still forgot. *sigh*

  4. Kris,

    I can’t wait to see the art work! If you know other homeschoolers, please let them know about the show. I think this could grow into a great art experience for us all. Your kids can add something to the flickr group right now just so we can have something to look at. It doesn’t have to be anything special or for a certain theme.

  5. Yay! I can’t wait to participate. I love that you’re giving ample time to complete the project. I tend to take a while to get going. 😉
