Here are some possibilities for you this week… Continue reading St. Patrick’s Day Fun!

Madilyn (7.5) was busy for a couple of days drawing an “animal series” ... while listening to our family read aloud one night, she was inspired to create Bob the Bear. Of course, he needed friends, so she drew Dave the Duck, and Fin the Fox. Bob the Bear Dave the Duck Fin the Fox… Continue reading Madilyn’s Animal Drawings
