not here too much…

because I’m busy organizing and brain-storming and researching ideas for our home and our home school and figuring out how to spend good time with ALL of the children, and not just the eldest doing the most “serious” school, and figuring out how to help him discipline himself to focus and work some on his own…

Speaking of… this is what his little creative distracted self can do… how is this for a fabulous piece of impressionistic art? 🙂 “Bridge on Dark Stormy Night”.  Its my new header now… I love the colors… and it might be dark and stormy… BUT it’s not snowy!! 🙂

Some fun stuff we have been learning and making the last couple weeks.

Celtic Chariots… ok… so these weren’t a hit and we didn’t finish them.  It’s not like you learn anything by cutting up a medicine box to make a mini chariot that looks nothing like a chariot anyway.

Frescoes (painting on Plaster of Paris) – like a cave… sort of… whatever. as the monks in India painted.  They had fun! Thad’s (praying mantis) and Keenan’s (tree in wind)

Mosque… I didn’t take a picture because it really wasn’t all that, and it didn’t thrill the kids or myself…

Sand Art – seriously.  SO messy.  But REALLY fun!! 🙂  And I did it too.

Slimy Plastic… this stuff was AWESOME.  This is for the next post… because I want to post all 50 something pictures :).
