The Lego Project

We find every year that Jayne suddenly changes in the last month before his birthday. It is almost like he saves all his emotional growth till the last minute. One of the things that has changed this year is his desire for structure. This led to the Lego project. He wants to separate out all of his Lego sets and reconstruct them. It has been quite a process and we are a good week into it already.

Adam has resorted to painstakingly sorting out the colors down to the tiniest pieces. Jayne on the other hand has decided he would rather just enjoy the fruits of our labor. He has become bored and has decided to just play with the Legos again. Oh well, he is 6 so it is to be expected.

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.

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.

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.
