Big Plans, Big Trip!

I don’t think I blogged about it, but right before Michael (remember little Michael?!?!?) went off to college, he and I went on a trip to Disney World. We saw all four parks in our time there, and it was a wonderful relaxing time. I’d like to think we made some amazing memories, and it was so good to bond with him before he went away. I miss him terribly.

At one point, I looked at him and said “You know, IiPiccy-collage wish I could have afforded to bring you all here when you were little. As much fun as we’re having, it would be so awesome to see the look of wonder and experience the park through a small child’s eyes.”

Apples, Oranges, and Cezanne

As part of our afterschooling with apples, we’ve been looking at the still life paintings of Paul Cezanne. Specifically, we looked at his Still Life with Apples and Still Life with Bottle and Apple Basket.

Cezanne

We have a little art appreciation area set up, although we may have to change it if we end up getting a hamster.

Spotlight on… Matthew

It’s hard to know what to say say about Matthew. When people used to ask (as people do when you have more than two children) when you’re going to stop procreating, I used to say “Oh, you know, when God gives us an easy one.” And then God sent me Matty… and, for good measure and to keep me on my toes, threw in Molly as well. Ha, ha, ha… good one, God!
