I am SO in the mood for spring and have LOVED the past few days of weather in the 60s. So why in the world did my blog banner still say “Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow”?!? (Well, other than I’m calendar challenged and easily lose track of time…)
Funny, when I first found the stripes for my last background, I really loved them. Now I really don't. I’m sure the same will happen to my current background – I think the grey will get to me after a while. I wish the grey were green. But oh well, I found it fast and it was free (at dryicons.com). So that’s good enough for now.
And just to check that this new template shows bullets accurately, here’s what else I’m up to today:
- watch neighbor kids this morning
- print out more grid paper from incompetech.com
- draw more grid pictures (like the ones at this site) for my kids—and hopefully, neighbor kids, assuming they’re into that kind of thing—to copy
- clean up, yet again
- do laundry, yet again
And that’s as far ahead as I want to think for now…
P.S. Here are the grid pictures we did yesterday:
CAR for Sophie to copy
ROBOT for Heidi (shown in middle; oh, she was SO careful to get it just “perfect”) but then Sophie wanted to try it too (shown at right; a little more free form; she got really frustrated with the knees—more complex shape than squares and triangles?—so I finally drew some dots for her to follow).
