"throw away the coloring books!!!" -that art teacher in college

"throw away the coloring books! 
throw away the coloring books!!!"
that's what my children's art teacher in college at chico state came in screaming at us 
the very first day of class, before he even told us his name and his favorite color.
i've never forgotten that teacher.
and it was always my favorite class.
she started giving them eyelashes this week.
and brennan has been working on his mater and mcqueen.
very exciting around here.
of creativity through art:)
above: what my table looks like all day, 
every day, between breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
and i love it:)
i've been working on my zebra and giraffe.
we have been talking a lot about their spots and stripes.
i can't wait to see what they come up with this week!
"Find joy in your children. Don't over-schedule them or yourself. You may not be able to take them on exotic vacations. It doesn't matter. When the day dawns bright and sunny, take an excursion to the canyon or the park. When it's cloudy and wet, read a book together or make something good to eat. Give them time to explore and learn about the feel of grass and the wiggliness of worms."

Love those pictures. And I especially love that quote. I can tell you live by it.
