I came home from Book Club and found this . . .

Once a month, I go to my book club.   It is what Dentist Husband jokingly calls, "the sacred night" because I don't let other things get scheduled that night and I rarely miss it.  

Last night, I walked into a completely dark house and everyone was upstairs asleep or almost asleep.  I turned on one light and found what you see below, painted on my kitchen table.  

While Dentist Husband was quizzing Toothsome #3 on his spelling words, he started painting with water colors that Toothsome #4 had left out, on our aluminum-topped kitchen table.  

You can imagine my kids reaction when they saw him doing this.  They couldn't believe it and soon they all joined in.  Dentist Husband told me, "It was a great moment for all of us.  I turned on music and we sat and painted."  

I have to admit, it is pretty dang awesome and I can't bring myself to clean it up.  I have a feeling we will be eating around our kitchen island for the next few days.  It just captures so many great things and I see each of my children's (and Dentist Husband's) personalities as I look at this "kitchen table art."  

Unrelated, Toothsome #2 is in braces.  My two oldest kids got and lost their baby teeth early, which makes it so they get braces young.  She should be done with braces forever in about a year.
