It is SO exciting when someone requests to learn something particular. I love being able to teach what people want to learn, and being asked specific questions means that we can help people meet their specific goals. Today, Ed wanted to learn how to draw people.

He soon realized that people need to have two legs, and then was concerned that the legs on his person were too short. We talked about torsos and bellies, and how the other body parts connect onto it. We even talked about knee caps! Ed is very observant and wanted to create the very best person possible.

Tuesday and Wednesday of this week, we took the TRAX to the Gallivan Center to watch musical performances at lunch time. On Tuesday, we saw Vienna Froerer, and on Wednesday, we saw Atomic Amy and the Spent Rods. It was fun to go sit out in the beautiful weather, enjoy some good music, and chat with the musicians! Here are some pictures from the concerts:
