Today I got to play Miss McCarthy the artist! Janet invited me to visit her first grade class. We made this big picture together! The mountain laurel is in bloom now, so I brought in a bough of it and we each drew a flower. The kids were so cute. Before we did any coloring they all wanted to be sure each of our penciled in flowers were connected. "Wait! Wait! Your flower needs a line to my flower!" Underneath the watercolor are little pencil lines connecting every flower to each other.
