We finally saw Noah and family over the weekend…he grew! he had a lot more vocabulary, and I heard him answer his dad in German! So, even though Noah completely skipped the Duplo phase from lack of interest, we decided he was ready for Lego. He took to it like a duck to water, as they say. Mind you, he didn’t actually build anything, but he moved the motorcyclist along, and was content to continue playing on his own…but alas, the family had to leave. Noah asked that we leave the Lego set up. We will…by using this photo to precisely follow this layout format when Noah returns for Easter… won’t he think we are the greatest, to leave it in tact all that time?
On Sunday afternoon, evening and today…I started working on an art show I’m in in June. It takes a lot to get me started, and I need about 5 more paintings, and a lot more tweaking on these, once the oil dries. It felt so good to get into the zone again. It’s odd what being away will do to you, that you aren’t even aware of. At some point, surrounded by flowers in N.Z., and L.A., I had a huge desire to paint flowers. Don’t judge these now, but it’s fun, and that’s what it has to be about, when you’re not a professional artist!!
