Is it possible to be a dedicated homeschooling mom while still making time for myself as an individual (a girlie girl who likes cute shoes)? I like to think so. Follow along, and I'll let you know for sure.

Trust me . . . it's not ALL about the shoes.

The Art of Illustration - Part 2

Our wonderful series on children's book illustrators continued this week with a co-op on author / illustrator Maurice Sendak, best known for the children's book Where the Wild Things Are. After enjoying some stories, the kids put pen to paper to create their own "wild things". In Sendak style, they outlined their subjects in black ink, then filled them in with color and used lines to create texture in their backgrounds.
