Of course we played with and cooed over Margaret all day. How can anyone resist this adorable baby!

Or something like this:
He's right. I better be careful.
"Jesus? Margaret is talking about Jesus?"
"Yeah. And Mary. The Holy Fabaly."
"The Holy Family?"
"Yup. Jesus, Mary, and Mama."

You are a moral person and are also highly intellectual. You like your solitude but are also kind and helpful to those around you. Guided by a belief in the goodness of mankind you will likely be christened a saint after your life is over.
You scored high as both the Lady and the Monk. You can try again to get a more precise description of either the Monk or the lady, or you can be happy that you're an individual.
Here are Isaac's interpretations of the Level 1 warm-up exercises. Isaac uses WASHABLE markers since by the end of drawing there are usually marker marks on his shirt, shorts, desk, hands, face, and even on some socks that he was not wearing during the lesson.
IJames wanted to continue the lesson and so he drew some common objects in the book by focusing on finding and drawing the basic elements of shape that the objects contained. For those of you familiar with James' usual drawings, you will surely see the difference in these he did for his lesson.
Isaac is also mastering identifying and saying the sounds of the alphabet. It is a little more difficult for him because we are learning all the sounds for each letter, instead of the most common sound. For example, for the letter "a" he learns to say "ahh, a, uh" He enjoys phonics, especially when he gets to learn a new letter.
We are learning to draw using "Drawing with Children." I will write more about that later. Here is Isaac's interpretation of the Level 1 warm-up exercise using the five basic elements of shape.
Here is Isaac just being cute and enjoying one of the few sunny and warm days we have left this year.

Notice the stump and the concrete path down the center of the yard.
Notice the chain-link fence.
The stump is gone, but the grass is slow to grow there. Michael built a stone pathway that follows the stone wall and goes around the clubhouse.
No more chain-link fence. Instead, there's a little stong path to the neighbors yard.
Raised beds are overflowing with veggies right now!
View from the garage. Notice the pretty stone path.
