Arty kinda day......



Both boys were home from school today, thanks to a teacher training day. It came as a little bit of a surprise as I have been out of action lately and didn't read last weeks newsletters to get that info. So needless to say we were all dressed and ready quite early this morning. No wonder the bus never came....lol!

So what to do? I threw that question out there to the boys, Thomas wanted to draw and Harry wanted to paint. He saw that the local newspaper had arrived yesterday so he was very excited as he knew we couldn't paint with out paper to cover the table. He's so funny what he thinks of!

Thomas sat down with his paper and crayons, while Harry and I decided to break out the paints. Harry did one painting that he wasn't to proud of (hence no photo) he then did a number of drawings that were just amazing! He's got a great sense of proportion and scale (must get that from his mommy) Thomas eventually picked up a paint brush and had a wonderful time mixing colors, loved exploring what color combination's would create a new color! It was great fun, being creative and talking at the kitchen table for hours!

Here are our completed works.....

Harry's art work of the nunu (sp?) Big flying animal the avatar rides in "The last Airbender" movie.







Another Harry artwork, this is Astro boy next to his satellite dish, saving the world!







Thomas drew a picture of himself next to a building and a control tower and fire and a mountain that was destroyed by the control tower.










Here is mommy's painting! Trying out some designs for a new line =)

Harry is a two wheelin...


The last training wheel finally broke off! "I'm OK Dad, I don't need them anymore!" and off he went. Just like that. He is now flying around the block, doing stunts and giving this mama a heart-attack. Why do boys think they won't break and will try anything...breathe mom breathe!
Harry so proud of you!!
