The blog hosting switcheroo is complete so I can finally post my update for last week!
This week we finally finished up our study of Ancient Egypt and we’re looking forward to moving on to the Far East! Lillia had a good week. Because I’m already living in the next week, I’m not going to give details of what we did, but I do want to share some beautiful artwork made by our very own resident artist, Lillia.
A self-portait using pastels.
An interesting study in pattern-making using watercolors.
And, my favorite, a beautiful self-portrait using acrylics.
I hung them up on a big, blank wall in the kitchen and they really brightened up the space.
Last week Zane was also very involved in artistic pursuits. He made all sorts of interesting sculptures from random household objects. For example, he built this interesting tower using the leftover breakfast dishes. The radio was also involved — maybe it was some sort of art installation.
And, this is a lovely creation made of objects he scavenged from the refrigerator.
This week Zane developed a real love of green smoothies. I can’t say I’m disappointed.
He played in his room quite a bit. We recently moved this shelf in there, and now he has lots of books and toys at his disposal (and out of my living room). He most often wants company. He even pats his little hand on the floor to show us where to sit.
And, lastly, he sang constantly — in the shower, while he was playing — and it was always “Jingle Bells.”
