On of the benefits of “working” a show like Art in the Park is my children get to come with me. Yesterday my eldest daughter came, and today my son. I enjoy having them with me. I don’t to take them to my real job, so this is where they get to see me relate with people and be a professional. It is an extra classroom for them, and a place for me to be a Dad by introducing them to the world outside of the home. It also gives a me a few moments to catch that glimpse of my children Mom gets everyday in homeschooling. The glimpse of the real child of mine. What good kids they are! They each endured several hours of slow times, but they engaged other adults with conversation. They learned a great deal, and were very courteous and respectful to all they met. They even did a good job talking to people about the prints we had for sale. We also had some time to laugh and talk to each other…all in the warm golden light of early fall.
To celebrate afterwards I snapped a few images of Kalen this afternoon. I had nothing current of him in my collection, and I really was missing that.
Got to celebrate the good times…for in just a few years they’ll be out and on their own!
