Most projects of this nature are productive and fun for about five minutes...until something goes wrong (in this case, the painting utensil bends slightly), frustration ensues,
otherwise white walls become debauched, and developing artwork receives some extra texture.
The air suddenly became still and world was quiet...
Even though Dad & cousins were absent,
Gpa R took Mia to the fair in an effort to maintain our annual tradition.
She stepped into her star-studded role with little effort.
Living up her small-ness:
Mia is taking a gymnastics class this year.
Win-win: She is ecstatic about it, and it provides high-quality entertainment for Mom.

Mia decided to BUST her moves in an effort to liven up the Brahms. It worked!
