I'm here! Bede and I have both been working on the school auction, which has claimed a lot of our attention. Our daughter having a low fever this morning was a mixed-blessing, because it meant we all got a little more rest after Bede and I wrapped up around midnight. In the meantime, parents from Lucia's class got together to assemble the three-ring circus we collaborated upon. Each class puts together a project, and parents the early childhood classes have to put together projects as well. The circus is not yet done, but I can show you the photos that the auction project leader took last night. While there are a few props that were purchased, as well as the three bendy families in attendance, just about everything else was made by hand.
Photo 1: I don't know if the 3 drums are done, but each drum is a circus ring that stores the animals, people and constructions. The circus top that's hanging will have cloth attached to represent the tent.
Photo 2: The tightrope! (Okay, it's a plank.)
Photo 3: The strong-man makes me laugh out loud. I know a lot of attention and thought went into his creation. Your eyes do not deceive you: that is a baby camel playing with a ball.
I love those seals. I'm glad someone made cotton-candy for the stand, because I was feeling twinges of guilt for not having gotten to that part of the plan.
The circus-master and the fortune-teller were both commissioned by another parent (the one who got me addicted to Etsy.com) and created by Dannielle of Princess Nimble-Thimble.
There's more to come, and the three elephants are fantastic, but 5 photos are enough!
