It’s been brought to my attention that I am a blog hog and a computer hog (1 computer, 5 people). So I will try to share the light. My peeps are to shy to guest blog so I’ll do it for them This post may border on those obnoxious Christmas letters where it’s nothing but major league bragging! I’m just warning you so that you may move on to someone else’s more entertaining blog. I’m going to shine the light on this project that Marshall spent all semester working on in Wood 1 class. What an awesome job he did! I know I’m his mom, but even you must see the superb craftmanship that went into this. He thinks it’s going in his room, but I may steal it to store craft items.
Now to shed a little light on Everett. He took art, and industrial arts this year and here I am bragging again. Below are pictures of his handiwork. Brain smarts are important, but I think being able to work with your hands and imagination are important too. Well rounded these boys! (Bear with me here – I think I’ve shared plenty of the dark side on my family so now I’m just flipping the rock over for a peak at the sunny side)
And I really wanted to show off some of Nate’s drawings, but that sunny disposition boy *rolling my eyes into the back of my head in sarcasm* refused to give me publishing rights to his works. I’ll just tell you that he drew a globe of a new planet named Formell and named all of the land masses and oceans. He also has created pages of new species and plants. Some of the plants are the Warted Tree, Clawplant, Shock Tree, and the Hollow Ringer. Some of the species are Rockman, Woodman, the Dancing Wart Frog, a Tontel that looks like an upside down snail and rides waves. Anyway, the drawings are so charming and boyish, but since he won’t share those I’ll leave you with some pictures of his garden.
Beets, marigolds, dill, and four varieties of tomatoes; lemon boy, Park’s whopper, pink girl, and yellow pear.
