One Week Down

The bottle is full of air!
We have one whole week of kindergarten under our belts now! We have a good routine down already and I think it is working well. Days 1 and 4 were a ton of fun, while days 2 and 3 were a little rougher. I can tell that we are both greatly appreciating our day off and it will be very low key around here today. 2 things really stuck out for little guy this week. He really likes the Boxcar Children, who found the dump and many kitchen items for their home there during our reading yesterday. He also had a blast with our 2 air related science experiments.
Handwriting Without far so good.
We spent the week learning about what it was like during the time of the first people. On the last day we made "clay" bowls just like the first people.
After making bowls we turned our focus to what they ate. Here is a bowl of blueberries and a fish for the first people to eat. Little guy says he wants to be one of the first people when he grows up, also an Olympic gymnast.

Cats in Paris: a Book Review

In Montreal adult coloring books are everywhere. When we came back to the states a couple of months ago I found they were popular here too. I really enjoy them and am very particular about what I pick. I like a lot of fine details mixed with whimsy.

Cats in Paris by Won-Sun Jang is simply beautiful. It begins with a sort of tour of Paris, with cats of course. There is a bit of narrative in this portion as well. The art is beautiful but not quite the page covering design work I personally love. The rest of the book makes up for it though. There are patterns and intri'cat' designs. The artwork throughout is beautifully done and a joy to fill in. I am so happy to be able to while away my quiet moments with this book.

Learning the Uke

The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.


Have you seen this video by Louie Giglio yet? It is really amazing to see how the universe proclaims God's glory. Take some time to watch it. God really is indescribable.
