Painter 12

Jay bought me a new computer and painting program. Yes, I know I’m a lucky duck. This pretty little face is my first attempt at illustrating with Painter 12. I have a lot to learn, but it will be fun to use.


To the Top!


We climbed to the top of Mt. Erie with Jay’s parents yesterday; and by ‘climbed’ of course I mean drove. It was perfect for our little family, and a beautiful payoff.


June’s Elephant


June sketched this elephant out on the chalkboard. I love the swirly knees. She asked me to make it purple and pink just for fun. I showed her my post and said,”Look June, your picture is on the internet!” She said, “What does that mean?” I told her it means other people can see it, and her eyes got big, “You mean I’m gonna be famous?!” She’s pretty psyched.




When one of my kids tells me they were picked on by a mean kid at school, I remember this guy from middle school. Hopefully he grew into a very nice adult…




Sometimes Brooke comes up to me and says, “Mom, let’s just belax”. I love that she still says some things in her own unique way. I would belax with her any day.
