Carlos' map.

Carlos' map. Includes the "Deadly Zone" "Hungry crew" "Nopal" "cave of the dead" and the "Deep Blue" and of course the best sword fighter.

Maps are a big deal these days.

Park days!

We've gone to the park several days in a row and its been delightful.

Carlos found a duck under the stairs. She's sitting on a nest.

Carlos lost another tooth!

This boy!! He is one that waits until the tooth is ready to fall out on its own. One came out in a marshmallow, another came out in a banana, and this one came out with a Skittle candy.

Lost Camera--What a bummer

It's not like I haven't wanted to post. But posting without pics is boring. I have Kentucky to post, some homeschooling activities we did, food we made, family outings. Sigh.

I want my camera back.

First Day Fun 2009!

Inspired by Facebook friends talking about their first day of dropping kids off to school for the first time this year, I thought it fitting to take the kids for a permanent reminder of the beginning of the 2009 year, even though we've been homeschooling throughout the summer. You are looking at a halfway-through-the-first-grade-year girl and a great preschooler who loves to do school, too.

We went to Naked Plates at the Breton Village Mall for an art session. Mami kept Anna busy for two hours as Lydia and Carlos picked out and painted their art projects. They thought about the projects and laid it out in their heads (required by Mami) before they started on the work.

Carlos was a bit bummed that he had to wait a week to take his flower pot home, but then was excited that he was going to come back in a week.




Lydia painted a nature scene: a rainbow, sun behind a pine tree, and lots of grass. She was very dedicated to the task and put three layers on as suggested by the worker.
All I have to say is that Anna is very heavy after two hours, and I can't wait to have the finished product at home! I can see popcorn served in that beautiful bowl and an avocado plant in the flower pot!
In the meantime, I found a Nativity scene in bisque just like the one that I lost moving from the apartment to my home nine years ago. I'm going to have to snag it off Ebay.
