I'm getting the biggest kick out of you elem. art teachers talking about
your kids making lollipop trees and "calling them on" making these in 4th
grade!!! Would you believe I still have kiddies in middle school who come to
me with the lollipop trees, still doin' the sun in the corner thing, and the
M&M birds? Gracious me! 'Course my kids have never had elem. art by the time
they reach me in 6th. We don't believe in art in the elem. schools around
HERE. I wish you all were teaching my kiddies first so I wouldn't have to
"go" there with them. You would sure save me a ton of time! Toodles....Bunki
