Welcome to a day in my life. I can't guarantee that this will be an exciting read for anyone. My life is filled with all the mundane activities of a stay-at-home-mom just trying to raise her three sons to be the best men they can be.

On Monday night we went to an art exhibit. This just wasn't any exhibit, though. The artists were the grades 6, 7, and 8s from Cameron's school.

The exhibit was held at the Oakville Museum and they had all the art work set up through several rooms in a very professional manner. It was a formal event (although Cameron neglected to tell me so we showed up in jeans - fortunately we weren't the only ones). It was so cool to see all the students all dressed up.

Not only was it an exhibit but it was a silent auction. All the money is going to Haiti. What a great idea, and a fun night. I was very impressed.

I should find out today if I won Cameron's painting. His was of Albert Einstein.

The Grade 8s created portraits of famous people.

The Grade 7s created a couple of projects, one of them being these rock characters who are stuck in their own "box".

The Grade 6s had three different projects displayed, one of them being these Shadow Branch Paintings. Very impressive.

It was such a great idea and a great event. I was very surprised at how many people were there too!


  1. Barbara! I love that artwork! It's better than some I have seen displayed by art major students at the local university. Tell Cameron I enjoyed seeing his artwork on your blog. :)

  2. Wow, wow, wow! Very impressive. Love Cameron's artwork as well as the others. What a wonderful idea. I sure hope that a lot of money was raised that way. :)

  3. Okay, that artwork is AMAZING! Wow! The vibrant colours and the energy the art exudes are very impressive.
