after my daily tussle with #1 to get dressed and to the arts center on time this morning, i went outside to find five art students sketching our house. it changed my mood instantly; i love little surprises (pleasant ones) that interrupt the normal flow of the day. now, I love our house, but i was intrigued by why these students chose it for their drawings. my first thought was that it faces east and has the full attention of the sun in the morning; jared thought perhaps they were attracted by the exceptional handiwork he did on the brick steps last weekend. i didn't ask them why - it was more fun to wonder. whatever the reason, it was fascinating to see our old, crazy little house evolve on paper through the eyes of others.
