Pumpkins

When Kabir’s cousins from Austin visited us earlier this month, they went to a pumpkin patch at Tupelo Buffalo Park. They brought back seven big pumpkins. That evening all the kids rolled up their sleeves, scraped out the seeds and carved their own pumpkins without much help from adults. It was Kabir’s first time scraping the seeds and carving the pumpkin. Arjun painted his pumpkin as he is too small to carve. Each pumpkin looked beautiful. Unfortunately, I had put all the pumpkins outside and in a week’s time, all the pumpkins, except Arjun’s, got so spoiled that we had to throw them away. Next time, when the kids carve pumpkin, I am going to keep them inside the house.

Kabir’s Art Class

This spring Kabir took 5 art classes from Mrs. Vicki Farmer. She is the best! I can’t believe that Kabir learnt to draw and paint like this. Actually, I did ask Kabir to draw the dog and rabbit at home when he was making card for someone. He actually did a pretty good job! So, he learnt very well from Mrs. Farmer. Each and every student in her class produces such amazing work. I wish I was little again so that I could learn like this.

He made the following paintings when he attended a day camp at Gumtree Museum of Art.

Kabir’s Artwork 2011

I try to do some artwork with kids once a week. These photos will always remind me the precious times with my kids (even though it can be pretty stressful during the artwork). Here are the photos of Kabir’s artwork in 2011.
