Thanksgiving trip

This is our nephew Colin. He's adorable, and my favorite part of hanging out with him was at this time, he was just chillin' on my lap!
Temp and I were trying to take a picture using the timer on the camera. The camera was pretty far away. He had to run threw leaves, run up a path, and halfway across this bridge I was on.

After about 4 tries, he did it!

Student Artwork

My kids assignment was to make an animation cel. This lesson plan I wrote on my own required they develop their own character from head to toe, give it some expression, and color it. They then they had to make a background in watercolor that their character fit in with. They took a transparency and painted their character backwards on it with acrylic paint. These are some of the first done:

It was a lot of fun and it seems like the kids really enjoyed it! I'm proud of them!

Bored on a plane again?

So Temp and I like to be crazy and creative on our flights, and this picture was one of the end products. We like to have one of us start with a little part of the drawing, I think I started with the head and it just went out of control from there: (but I like it!!)

Good news!

Salvador had a little scare. He has had a heart murmur since I have had him, but his last annual check-up gave us some scary news. The doctor suggested that we get an ultrasound of his heart, and that "she" would be concerned if it were her cat.
I made an appt. with a cardiologist, and today we went. Sal definitely has a heart murmur, but it's not too serious right now. We expected at least he would start medicine to stop the progression of his cardio-myopethy, but she said we didn't have to. Eventually it will progress, but we are fortunate it's not too bad right now. Because he has had this his whole life, he will probably live a lot longer. The typical cat is diagnosed/or develops this at around Sal's age now (middle age) and don't have much more life to live. But Sal is doing ok, and I am very pleased!! Those of you who have pets, make sure to do the annual exam, you could prolong or save your animal's life!
