Girls' Night/Boys' Night

Since GA shuts down for Spring Break, or at least everyone seems to think it should, we had a night out last night.  No church during spring break.  How crazy is that?

I went to a paint class.  I have wanted to for years.  I loved it.  I went with a girl here that I have really enjoyed.  She is a Christian momma, and I have yearned to have some strong Christian friends here.

The start of my painting.  

My completed picture. 

Our works of art.  

My completed work at home on its current resting spot - my mantle.  I was very pleased with it.  I have about zero artistic ability.  

So, while I was there, Robert and Eric and another father and son from church went to the Braves game.  Robert also took our friend, Ellis, from LTC.  It was his first baseball game, and he was mesmerized.  They had a great time!  

No swim this week either.  I'm telling you, GA shuts down at Spring Break more than any other holiday.  We swim the days around Thanksgiving and Christmas.  But Spring Break?  No way!  That is a sacred holiday around here.  

However he did have soccer today.

I love your painting - it's so sweet!
Did you see what's in the background of the picture of the two of you? Exploding Tardis!!

Tracy said...

Thanks. I was very fond of it, cause I cannot paint. I can draw a mean stick figure, but that's about it. I had to look up Exploding Tardis, isn't that sad. I did think often of Vincent during my time there. :)

Ellen said...

That is very sad! And you call yourself a Whovian... - maybe that's just me :)

Tracy said...

Not a Whovian yet. But I do love me some doctor!

I think you did a fabulous job with your first painting Tracy! You always chose music over art in school because you weren't allowed to take both, but I think you have a hidden talent for art too. Great job!! :)

Tracy said...

Ha! Well I appreciate the kind words. Not sure that I have any artistic talent at all, but it was fun. And I was very pleased with how it turned out. :)
