Recent Goings On

I have wanted to blog more, but all I have in me right now is a bunch of pictures for you that reflect our recent life. Enjoy!
One day, the girls decided to make houses out of some of the boxes left over from the move. E was very welcoming with hers: A, not so much. Check out what she wrote on her box:

Down in the basement, we have a studio for all things creative. It is not anywhere finished setting up, but we try to use it some anyway. One day we got a book from the library on Sumi-e, or Japanese ink painting, and tried our hands at it.

The weather has started to act spring-like, so we got out for some work in the yard. E took this picture of me and A weeding and sprucing up the roses and pathway.

I forgot to chronicle it here, but E recently began riding her bike without her training wheels. She is doing great and is so proud to be riding earlier than her sister, age-wise. It was tough for her to watch A learn and not be able to do it herself, so she pushed herself and figured it out almost two years before her sister.

Here is just a pretty picture of E:

I'm going to try to be a bit more vocal on here. We really do have a lot of life going on here and I want to get it recorded and share it with you all.
I'd love to hear from you readers more often, those I know and even those I don't know. Click that comment link right down there and leave me a comment! Please? I promise I'll visit your blog and say hello, too.

well, you know I'm always the pictures. M was the same with with riding a bike. She had a little neighbor friend that was riding earlier than she. That helped take her to the post training wheel stage...just seeing someone else do it and wanting it badly enough for herself.

Hey there!

Great pics! The bottom one is lovely. Nice to read about what you've been up to. Yay for no training wheels!

OK, that sounds like a good deal! :)

I'm usually just a "lurker" checking out what other unschoolers are up to. Looks like you've had a busy life lately! Congrats on the move.
