As we begin the homeschool journey, we are excited to see which areas our children are talented at and interested in. We got this drawing/writing book for school, Draw Write Now, and Ezra has been having fun with it! Here is a sample of his work! Ezra has never really been one for drawing or coloring, he mainly likes to scribble. Occasionally, he'll turn out a recognizable piece here or there (remember his airplane picture? I don't think he's drawn one since then), but usually it's hard to get him to draw "something." He has been doing a good job with his letters and I was actually surprised that he took to this drawing book so quickly. Maybe we have a budding artist in our family? We will see! Have I mentioned that I LOVE having a scanner?

Flashback Friday

Well, not exactly the same flashback, but at least we are both on trikes! Notice Matt's red striped tube socks and the CHiPs trike (with Ponch's face by his knee) that Kyle got for Christmas one year!

Flashback Friday

Do they still have this van at Universal Studios? That would be fun to have our kids take pictures holding it up! Do you have this same photo?

Flashback Friday (on Sunday)

We finally got the scanner set up and it has been fun going through old photos tonight! I put together a photo collage to be on display at our wedding and it was so fun discovering similar pictures of Matt and my childhoods! Here is a fitting seasonal photo! Did you know that my brother and I never went trick or treating when we were kids? We'd dress up for school and go to the little harvest festivals and such, but I was probably in 7th grade when I went out with friends for the first time. It wasn't for any religious reason, but my mom didn't like the idea of us going out to get candy! Maybe that is why I have a major sweet tooth now?? Even with the little trick or treating we do (at the mall or church harvest festivals), I'm not really excited about all the candy that we collect (and I end up eating). So, I'm not sure what we'll do this year, I'll keep you posted! I'll try to post regular flashback photos on Fridays to help keep me on track on this blog! Happy Fall!
