Back to School

It’s back to school around our house. Saxon started kindergarten and Samantha is in a 3 year old class. They are both getting into the swing of things.

samantha goes to “capers” once a week. It’s like theater for little kids and she was a sheep this week.

here’s samantha all dresssed up, ready to go to a birthday party.

the big kindergartner, saxon, doing her homework.

for “share and tell” saxon got to tell about one of her favorite animals, the zebra. she is really sad that lions eat them.

saxon’s first homework assignment was to make a poster all about her to introduce herself to her class. She was given a week to do it but I decided to teach her “dad’s way” and wait until 5 pm the night before it was due to start.

Learning Tree Hands

Saxon’s pre-school, The Learning Tree School, is having their Spring Auction and Party,Bella Notte
on Thursday, April 8.

Somehow, I got volunteered to be in charge of the class art project that will be auctioned off. I collaborated with Saxon’s teacher, Ms. Ruth, and her class to create a work of art called Learning Tree Hands.

If you guessed that I was trying to create a photograph of a clean, perfectly-symmetrical circle from their little hands, you would be absolutely correct. Seriously, what was I thinking? Initially deflated at my inability to nail the shot I had preconceived, but when I returned to the studio, I realized three and four year olds are rarely perfect and rarely clean. So, I thought this was a perfect portrait of little Learning Tree Hands, illustrating both the independence and the differences/similarities of the children.

Using the image, I created the class art project (titled, Learning Tree Hands) as a limited-edition, ready-to-hang (no frame required!) metallic gallery wrap. Hopefully, parents will see this as being perfect for their child’s room, playroom or some other fun place in their house and start a bidding war for charity.

March Madness at MoseleyWorld

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…No, not Christmas. March Madness.

Check out expert picks at ESPN. Stop whining about time. Surely you’re not busier than Prez Obama who had time to fill out his bracket that features KU, Villanova, Kentucky and K-State in the final four.

The MoseleyWorld competition is here. Play me?

Parisian Love - Google Style

It’s becoming almost as popular (at least by the media) to hate Google as it is to hate Wal-mart. But, I challenge you to watch the Google commercial that aired during the Super Bowl and not find it endearing. Google did a great job of giving a personality to a HUGE company while demonstrating not only what their product is, but how well it works.

Sorry, this ad contained no talking animals or babies, gonad punching, football or guys in their underwear (whoa!). But maybe that’s why it was a breath of fresh air, a departure from the lowbrow tone taken by most of the commercials aired during the big game. BTW, who dat!
