Read across America

This week was Read Across America and Dr. Seuss' birthday.  The elementary school celebrated by asking the kids to dress as their favorite book character on Wednesday.  Unfortunately, Zadie wasn't feeling well and spent the day on the couch watching Mako Mermaids.  The middle-schoolers were, of course, way to cool for this particular celebration, so it was up to Rosie to redeem the week for us.

Her pre-k classmates each chose a favorite Dr. Seuss character to dress as, and Rosie chose the Grinch.  Of course she did.


We asked if she wanted to be the big-hearted Grinch who carves the roast beast, but she replied, "No, I am the mean Grinch who steals all the toys!"


Well, she does know what she wants, and I must say, she was the cutest Grinch I ever saw.

Barn mural

Now that the babies are getting a little bigger, I have turned a little bit of my attention back towards one of my favorite endeavors, mural painting.  I thought I'd share a recent commission that I completed for a client in their children's nursery.



This job was so much fun, because the kids were similar in age to my own children, so I had some great helpers at home to tell me exactly what I needed to paint.

Summer photo recap

Obviously this was our first summer with five kids.  High five!  We made it through.  Clearly there was no blogging, but here are some of my favorite moments.
