  1. We need to get children interested in art young, that's how we instil real passion.

  2. My oldest has become quite the industrialist. I "hired" him for a job. He then directs his brothers on what needs to get done. I pay him and he doles out a smaller amt to his help . I almost died laughing when I caught him. I guess he learned how to organize and run a business!!! LOL

  3. Gaa this was supposed to be under the last post! ...sigh
