"A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013"

Nona- Peeking up from her game to check on the parakeets. I love her little smile. She looks like Amelie Poulain here, oui?
Dashiel- Computer lab time. It was humorous to watch him race. Every so often, he would lean over to see if the boy next to him was winning, leaving his car to smash into anything and everything. I think in this picture, his car ran into a lake!

Following along with Che & Fidel with 52.
Favorites this week- Alice and Vicente, Ronan, and Jacob!

This week we visited our local library. Wow, I had no idea how far libraries have come! We make our way into the children's section and we walk into a whimsy light forest. The kids let go of my hand and dart inside! I try to focus their attention and we start to make rounds. First the aquarium, then- chalk table, giant abacus, parakeets, frogs, tarantulas, puzzle table, computer lab...etc. It was hard to get them to pick out books but we finally settled on a few. I even found some great French language dvds(Muzzy) for children. In the end, I had to drag my children out of the library, promising to come back tomorrow. What a wonderful problem to have!

"A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013"

Nona- Sitting at the family table, by herself, for the first time. 
Dashiel- Where's Waldo? This book has actually kept his interest since we got it last month. Win!

"A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013"

Dashiel- He was very explorative with his movements. At first he laid on his back kicking his feet, then he made duck shaped shadows with his hand and lastly he asked me if he could dance. In this shot he just sat there in awe, smiling.

Nona- She paced back and forth for awhile, laughing. She then grabbed her brothers' airplanes and made shadows. Then investigating the projector, she discovered the "on/off" button and "click" on, off, on, off, on...

Following along with Che and Fidal with the 52 project!

Last week favs- Junie and Oliver.

I made some transparencies this week and the children seemed to really love them. I made Dash a image of an erupting volcano and for Nona, I made a kaleidoscope. I've had an overhead projector for awhile now and I'm so glad to finally put it to use. I will most certainly make a bunch during winter time and maybe even get some tangrams for more light play! 

Have a lovely week everyone!
