As the school year comes closer to an end, we always seem to slack off in doing the actual school work, yet, somehow we seem to get more done. I guess I don’t feel as stressed to do this curriculum or that project, and in letting go of that I feel more free to experiment. I like that!
This past weekend, Kaia participated in the local Pine Car Derby race and took third place! Here is her car zooming past the competition!!
I’m not sure how she got comfortable on the rock wall, but she always finds fun spots to read! (yes, her ‘pleasure’ reading is any book from the Horrible series!)
I grabbed a book on Georgia O’Keeffe from the library for an impromptu artist study. What a neat woman! Kaia and I decided to try our hands at large flower art. She’s working on her purple pansy here.
We used oil pastels, so our fingers were very colorful from all the smearing on the canvas.
Here’s mine. I’m not sure what kind of flower I was looking at. It was from a bush up the hill that was covered in little flowers like this.
And tell me, what is it about 3 year olds and chocolate ice cream?
This is Leif from this past weekend:
And here is Kaia from when she was three years old. See any theme here? (yes, I know, that is a crazy picture. I think she stuffed most of the ice cream in her cheeks!)
Have a beautiful week!
