We have just been so busy lately that I have not had anytime to update.
And I still don’t, but here are a couple of recent photos to prove that we are still around. Violet woke up and immediately set to drawing — she has the book Learn to Draw the Fairies of Pixie Hollow, which is really a pretty nice little drawing book. It resonates well with Violet’s style, emphasizing little details like the angularity of Vidia, the fast-flying fairy, the shape of different characters’ eyes, wings, etc. When she first got the book she was frustrated with it — following the instructions is not just fun, effortless drawing. But now she is really doing well with it.
So, I am letting our regularly scheduled stuff wait a little longer while she draws and I post photos of Violet the monarch butterfly
and Victoria the explorer (“Want to go exploring with me?” she says!).
