Technology Boy

This is from August of last year, when E was almost 2.
He had just discovered You Tube and was immediately hooked.
His favorite video at the time was the old Mana Mana clip
from Sesame Street. That's what he's asking for here.

Sleeping Boy

This is the part of the twos that I will miss severely.

Road Signs

Here are some road signs we saw on our trip.

And some signs we should have seen:

Beware of frogs (they were flopping all over the road
once it started raining).
Beware of roadkill (need I say more?)
Forget the rocks. It's eyelids that matter.
Especially when you've hardly slept all week.

Just like cabin experiences I had as a child, the trailer
has a lovely collection of old stuff. This includes astroturf on the floor
of the enclosed patio and (whee!) a macrame lampshade.

Computer Kids

The library at Pinetop had a computer in the children's
section that Elliott got to use. He's still talking about it
and trying to get us to take him back there.

The Trailer

This is the trailer we stayed in over our weekend in Show Low.
Isn't it wonderful? It is a cat ready to pounce.
We had a refreshing little trip & enjoyed the mountain beauty.

Waiting Room... Er, Hallway.

Let's just call this one mixed media,
because I can't tell how it was done. June, 2006.

Warrior 1

A couple of years ago, my husband developed an rpg board game
for the kids in our church. He asked me to come up with some images
of characters to experiment with as we upgrade the game a bit.

My Backpack...

is one of my favorite and most used things!
It serves as diaper bag, traveling art kit, music tote, and
all-around life organizer. Not to mention the place where
I can always find my lip balm.

Dispensational Theology

Okay, this is about as much as I know on the topic.
Any mention of it brings up these kinds of images for me.
