"Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord's glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit." 2 Corinthians 3:17-18

Casa de Fe's 1st Art Show!!!
I don't know what's going on with blogger right now. It won't let me move/copy any of my test or pics. So...sorry for the random order. The explanation is at the bottom. :)
Ms. Norma- Pre-K teacher this year....her make-up was for the dance. :)
The kids gave Bethany roses afterward. It was definitely an emotional night...a culmination of a lot of hard work. She got mad at me for taking this pic. ha.
Ali was telling the crowd about all that Bethany had taught the kids this year. Getting them all to look at the same time was impossible! Ingan and Tia Nelly were amazing hombres.
He wasn't so much into the dancing, but he still looked really cute. :)
Dwight with Maribel, Jeni & Rosa....they're growing up way too fast!
Now for the art...which was supposed to show up first. This was one of the Kinder kid's watercolor.
Pre-K Dance with Rosa in the middle
Rosita was the star of the show! She sat on a chair in the middle of the dance floor and shook her hips the whole time.
LOL...I had to put this in here. I'm pretty sure it was one of the older girls' version of Miss Alison.
These were amazing! Miss Ali's class all did these, but this one was my favorite.
Way, WAY too grown up- L to R- Rosa, Jeniffer, Maribel, Gabi, Jhulisa, Marcia, Maria (We take these girls to chruch every Sunday morning. drama queens!!!)
Pre-K getting all dressed up :) It's traditional for kids to rent costumes for everything...school performances, parades, etc...
I know these posts aren't in order by date of event, but who cares. Nothing feels 'in order' during the summer, so it's all good.
I mentioned in a recent post that Bethany Sauls came to teach art this past year. She really did an amazing job. We all saw how much the kids responded and grew under her direction. There has been so much healing and positive self-expression through the things she has done with them! God has definitely blessed Bethany with a natural talent for art, and she turned those gifts around in service to Him....beautiul.
At the end of the school year, Bethany organized Casa de Fe's first annual art show. It was awesome! She had collected the kids' work throughout the school year, and she made sure that each child had at least one piece on display. She spent a ton of time framing and labeling every piece, and the final display was incredible. The kids were just giddy that night...all dressed up as everyone in the community came by to see their work.
