Random Tid Bits

  1. The boys never got into coloring books. It's kind of surprising considering that Isaak's into crafts, art, and goes through paper a lot! He prefers just paper to draw, or write on. They also use the dry eraser board, and chalk board to draw on.

    Coloring books that look like this are pretty interesting to me:

  2. My Brother-in-law is now having problems with his job. They have Emerson that needs a lot of health care. Fingers crossed that things work out! Even if he switches jobs, gets paid more, gets respected more, they'll have to wait a month for health insurance to kick in. What is it with jobs this year?

  3. The boys are so excited to be able to go to a Lock-In at the library later in June. Before Isaak and his cousin Elijah were too young. Now that they are big second graders they can go. The librarians literally lock them in the building from 6-10. They have a blast. I told my sister that the only thing that could happen is one of them could run into a shelf playing laser tag. They do play laser tag at the library. They have games, pizza, and other fun things to. 

  4. Isaak has a friend he talks about all the time. Family dynamics are so odd now - in general. This boy's parents are separated. The Dad has him most of the time. He never calls me back. His grandparents do call me back. The grandma seems to love talking to me actually. When she calls we're on the phone for at least 10 minutes. Setting up times for the boys to play is hard though.

  5. One of my students came up to me and asked if I wanted to work on something for a nonprofit organization called Adopt Art Omaha? I thought it would be fun, then I thought it would be too much work (I got it when Travis was out of town), and lastly I thought it would be fun again. If you are an Omaha reader please think about coming to the event. The Dog Show will be at RNG Gallery in Council Bluffs on June 13 & 14! RNG is located at 157 West Broadway Council Bluffs, Iowa 51503. It's little dog cut outs given to different artists in the city. The artist can do it whatever way they want to. It still has to look like a dog in the end. I did mine with a lot of nature things.

My boys never really got into coloring, either. I used to LOVE to color when I was little, but mine just don't like it.

My girls never liked coloring books either. Allison grabs coloring sheets from the library, but I tend to toss them in the recycling after a few weeks because she never colors them!

I LOVE your doggy art work!

Your dog art work turned out cool. I don't color often but find it therapeutic and relaxing once in a while.

That is funny the boys don't get into coloring. I still like to color.
