As part of the 50th celebration at Circle View Elementary I offered to face paint the students. I'm embarrassed to say this '50' I painted on my cheek in the photo is my second attempt. First attempt - using a mirror - I unwittingly painted 05. Seriously. Slap upside the head. Good thing I didn't turn up at school like that!!
And in case you needed to know - never underestimate the appeal of face paint with the 5- 10 crowd! So enthusiastic and yelling their demands! Most of the kids were darling, and maybe two or three even said thank you.
Anyway, I was determined to be a two color only painter and to paint as speedily as possible: 50 one cheek, CV for Circle View the other. I was fast, but maybe not the most popular volunteer face painter. Two hours and hundreds of faces later, I'm ready to run as fast as I can to my car and a large coffee (it not being anywhere near wine o'clock...)
Carry on teachers! You do a brilliant job being around those small folks day after day - I'll stick to my day job!
