Fun with Picasa 3

 Took these photos of the buildings at the college on B's first day. I used Picasa 3 ( a free program) to play with them a bit.

 All packed up

First Day

Ready for the first day for Kindergarten

 The sign was made by the eighth graders for all the new little people.
Found this poem on pinterest; seems appropriate.

art day

 the grands and I had art day this week. I found this project on Pinterest. Instructions were to put paint on paper and blow with a straw. The paint didn't seem to move very good. The second photo is blowing with a straw. The top picture was made by dropping blobs of paint on the paper, folding it in half and rubbing it with your hand. This technique seemed to work better. The grands added the googly eyes to make monsters.
