Farmer Day and Painting Faux Pas
Today is Farmer Day at C's school. This dress up day was harder for us than usual b/c C doesn't really have any farm clothes and around here the farmers wear jeans and T-shirts and look just like everyone else. So, we dug out his John Deere hat and tool belt. Then C said that farmers wear bandannas like cowboys, so we added that. Here's our little farmer!
And, as always, little sister wanted to say cheese, too :)
As for the fainting faux pas....let me just say that if you are going to paint a red stripe and you have to paint multiple coats of red, then when you peel the tape off, then the entire red stripe might just peel right off with it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was so frustrated, mostly about all the time that I had spent painting it that was wasted. So, we tried to put our heads together and decide what we did wrong and now have a new plan of attack. Here is what it looked like after I took the tape off, there's a perfect stripe, but it is white, as in primer white, b/c all the layers of paint peeled off perfectly! Any suggestions are welcome :) And we waited 48 hours before taking the tape off, so surely it was dry ?!?
