Painting in his sketchbook. He used almost all of the computer paper up, so when I was at the PX I picked up a thick sketchbook. (Not his first one) I like it so much more than loose paper. His drawings are all together and will be such a keepsake. He draws lots of Lego and Ninja stuff, but also does some painting too. A kid after my own heart.

There's nothing like rolling down a hill full of crunchy leafs, or watching someone else! Toben went down roll speed, laughing all the way. What sight to be seen.

Waggle Tooth

Last week Silus noticed he had his FIRST "waggle Zahn" (loose tooth).

He took the advice of the well seasoned tooth pullers in the house and ate an apple.

Out it came.

Where you can almost touch a time long ago.

Where you can hear the sound of cow bells clinging.

And see a parade.

Where you can feel the cool water on your toes.

And make friends.

Sketching and Watercolor

I started an online art class about a week ago. The teacher sends out very simple instruction that I download. I can read, and re-read, and yes, read again, hen begin the project. I sketch, outline, and paint. Next I upload a photo to a forum and the teacher gives me her thoughts and suggestions about it.

The kids have gotten really excited about the class after seeing a few of the things I've done, so I decided to give them a little mini lesson. They did a great job, and painted little works of art.
