Michael The Artist

On Sunday we went to the Springfield Art Museum to look at the delightful artworks of the Springfield Elementary students of which Michael was a collaborator with his fellow students.  See the rainbow tree behind him.  There is some of his handiwork.


Met up briefly with the sweet gals from the Knitworthy Podcast Linda and her daughter Brianne.  So nice to listen to them as I knit on little hats.
