So we have been busy doing lots of homeschooly type stuff around here. We are trying on more of a formal schedule, well really not all that formal, but more so than the usual circus show we got going on. So can I show off a little? OK, thanks :). So we are studying six paintings by Vermeer over the next 12 weeks. This week we all painted our own version of his "Girl with a Pearl Earring" painting. Check out Jack's.
I don't know about you, but I think it's genius. Isn't is beautiful!!? OK I'm having a mom moment maybe, but no really, isn't it amazing?
OK moving on now to our weaving
This is a quote from Jack as he got going on his colorful weave "mommy, I love this. I feel like I could weave all day long". :)
And today, the salamander. Oh the salamander, there is a story there but I don't have the energy to tell you it right now. One found today, and lost. We came home and the first thing Jack asked was if he could draw a picture of the little salamander. So here he is. Cute little guy huh? He actually looked a lot like this too.
OK, well see you soon, I'll try and check in here more often, I know I've been slacking here in this blog lately. My energy has been elsewhere, but I do like checking in. Have a good week everyone, see you soon.
