Over the last few weeks, I've been figuring out life here in Harrisburg and getting settled in to our new little home. I had the opportunity to visit my friend Amy a couple weeks ago and then last week I was able to see Jessica and Tori. It was so nice to see good friends after spending time away.
On Friday of last week, I was invited to come speak in three different elementary classes at Penn Christian Academy. Jessica is a second grade teacher there and she wanted me to talk to her class about ways to deal with anger and anxiety. It was such a great opportunity to talk about art therapy and draw out emotions with the students! Different ways to handle emotions are through deep breathing exercises, scribbling (which the students re-named to "scribble scrabble"), and drawing out our emotions on cartoon faces.
I just love Autumn. It's my favorite season; the fresh air and the crisp, cool mornings. The leaves changing and dancing through the air give life to the last few moments before winter sets in and time slows. I love capturing these Autumn days.
