Emma and Vivian were blessed enough to be invited by a friend to Emmalee’s Art-Abration, hosted by Sherry’s Craftastic Cottage, this Art-Abration is an annual celebration event for families of children with special needs. The goal was for the children to enjoy the gift of art and to build friendships in an inclusive environment and is a part of Art-Ability, an inclusive art program for children of all abilities in grades K-12.
Who is this Emmalee you ask? Well, Emmalee is the daughter of Wayne and Tina, the founders of the Ability Tree, Florida. And this day is to honor her and the gift from God from she is along with every single other child that He blesses us with, no matter their ability level!!!
Dad took Emma and Vivi this time to the event, so I missed out on the art fun and am telling the story second hand. But apparently, it was loads and loads of fun! Emma, Vivian, and all the kiddos there got to make their own paintings, and my girls came home with absolutely gorgeous snowman paintings(as you can see below)! They must have had a good time because Vivi had enough paint on her in various places that she needed to take a quick shower to get all cleaned up before meeting up with Grandma and Grandpa for lunch (don’t worry, it washes of the kiddos and the clothes!). Emma said she fun paining too, of course!
A great BIG THANK YOU to Sherry’s Craftastic Cottage and Ability Tree for a wonderful event that my little girls thoroughly enjoyed and my hubby got to have some Daddy — Daughter time at!!!
