J's friend, S, called last night and asked me if we were going back to the Queens Museum for the Sunday family program. I'm glad she did because it totally slipped my mind. The kids had CCD (Sunday school) this morning and we made a plan to meet S and her parents at the museum at 1pm. B, all 3 kids, and I went today. Today's project was based on a piece of art that looks like paint splattering, but is really embroidered cloth. We blew black ink around a paper with a straw, traced the image we created onto mesh plastic, and sewed yarn into the mesh following the pattern we made. I know it sounds confusing, but it comes out awesome looking. All of us adults made one, too! Afterwards, we went down for ice cream and found a paper with a museum scavenger hunt on it. We spent the next 45 minutes finding all the answers to the questions. It was hysterical. We won a small prize for getting 10 answers right. I took the kids back to the Art Zone where they did some more artwork. W saw a cute girl his age and acted all macho and funny around her. He always does that around girls (especially ones with long, blond hair, LOL). We finally left around 4pm.
In the evening, J was on the phone and the IM with a bunch of friends and K finished printing and gluing the last of her science fair project. Now W is almost asleep and K and J are working on their sewing project from the museum today. I really want to finish up mine too!
