Laura spent a lot of Cousin Camp last year at the Art Academy. She had Charlotte primed, and they are only ten years old, so all they needed from a grandma in the front seat was gas to drive the car.
I went in to drop off a pack of parental releases and found my two deep in the throng around the table. The theme is circles, and the project is a coiled basket.
Here’s Laura’s. We may never see Charlotte’s finished basket, which may be big enough to hold her baby sister, if she gets all the rope covered.
I was early today, and greeted by this picture. Another circles project, no doubt. As I was getting the shot, a little fellow leaned into the frame and back out, just as quickly.
“Oh, you’re taking pictures,” he said.
“Just this one. I like the picture.”
“Thank you. It’s mine.”
I was done, and he leaned over and took it back inside; it was dry. What an observant and polite young man. May he live long and prosper.
