With the arrival of summer recently, my wife created this wonderful drawing for Jade.
We only have small carrot sprouts poking out now … but one day sooooon !!!
On the other hand, our beans and peas are really growing.
All joking aside, Jade and I had a blast at StrongStart yesterday.
StrongStart is a FREE early education program in BC, Canada.
The top drawing is a fun doodle from our pressed plants (shown below).
Jade really loved being in the trails and picking leaves and flowers.
And I really liked drawing from our exploration.
This exercise helped me focus on unique details and shapes of our local plants.
All the insects parading around outside … gotta love this season.
A goofy creation of mine during our “Art Time” with my nieces and nephews at Grandma’s.
At Grandma’s place, Jade had some exciting moments with her cousin Liam.
Liam loves to “splatter paint” and he created this wonderful autumn image (above).
My wife also created this “edgy” snake for Liam’s arm with face paints (below).
Liam’s hamming it up to scare his mom (my sister).
At Grandma’s, Jade had a chance to re-connect with her older cousin Sonia.
Lots of times, I’ll see an expression on Jade’s face and I’ll think of Sonia.
Above is a surreal drawing made by Sonia.
Below is a photo of Sonia when we went to a favourite Vietnamese restaurant.
We just came back from Grandma’s home in Saskatchewan.
Grandma is “old school” and doesn’t have any cable tv or internet connections.
Because of that, we spent a lot of time drawing, going to to the playground, etc.
Jade had a wonderful time seeing all her cousins, aunts, uncles …
And Jade especially loved seeing her Grandma again.
Thankfully, Jade likes salad … but only with italian dressing.
A fun spring doodle for Jade.
