FIAR Art and Talent Show

This is something we have done for years - though not every year.  It started as just an art show and last year expanded to include music.  This year it also included one song, a poem and a reading.  Its a neat opportunity for our children to have a chance to share their work and/or talents and to enjoy those of their friends.

 We were blessed to be able to host our event at a local music store with a separate room.  This was really great for those playing the piano and it was a real treat to have a piano duet!
 Eliana was proud of her picture of the Yellow Ball.  It reminds me that I really need to do more art with her!
 The art was displaying on tables around the room.  There were drawings, painting, sculpture, carvings, weaving, mixed media, and more!
 I really enjoy seeing all that they do.  It's fun to see things that tie into FIAR lessons that we have done too!
 There was a lot of talent to enjoy in this room!

 I especially like seeing the children sharing their work with each other.  We all like it when someone appreciates our work no matter what our age.

 I wasn't able to get good photos of the musicians based on where my seat was located.  I did get a group  photo though!
 Eliana wanted a turn on the piano too.  She loves music!
 Friends looking at the 3-D scrapbook that Rebecca made me for Christmas.
 More art to enjoy!

Another fun day with friends.  So many things to be thankful for.  God gives so many gifts and they come in so many different forms.  I don't always take time to stop and appreciate things like I should.  Days like this are a good reminder to me to slow down and enjoy.  (Not always so easy though when chasing an active little girl!)

Thanks friends for sharing your children and their work!  I look forward to doing this again next year!
