I hate bathrooms like this

Plus, your older brother is probably right outside trying to pry open the door when everyone else is walking by,

Look what I found


I was practicing some things during lunch today, and I saw this huge LASIK machine just sitting in the middle of the hallway on the second floor. There wasn't anyone nearby, and I thought it was pretty cool.

Then I walked up to it and saw this bag sitting on the blue paper

Yes, that is a sandwich baggie full of eyeballs. I guess they're sitting there for people to practice LASIK on. About 30 minutes later, a group of 3rd year students came up and were being instructed how to perform LASIK. 

The funny thing was that I was eating my sandwich out of my baggie as I was walking past this thing, but I didn't lose my appetite or anything.

Olivia's song

Every night, right before we turn out her light, Olivia gets one story and two songs. After telling her a story about Curious George and her Pink Monkey going to Kroger and bingeing on bananas, she told me she wanted to sing ME a song tonight.

This is the song:

My monkey is a princeeeeess,
Ohhhh a princessss
A piiink princess
My daddy is not a priiiiincess
My daddy is a doggie

The end

Olivia's new drawing

Today Olivia really wanted to draw a picture on the scrap piece of paper we were using to keep score on while we played Farkle. She drew the following picture can you tell what it is?

If you're having a hard time, she even wrote her own sentence explaining what is was:

It says "I iz a mos" or " I is a moose." Isn't that so cool? I'm not so sure what it says above the moose...probably a war cry or something. I love seeing her writing and sounding things out on her own along with her awesome drawings.

Triple batch of color-by-numbers!

It's your lucky day! I made 3 different color-by-numbers for you! The first two I tried to make the numbers a little bigger so that Sophie won't be so frustrated. Hopefully it works.

Here's a baptism one that I drew for Olivia to color while in church. We're also planning on doing it as part of our Primary lesson:

Here's a St. Patrick's Day/Rainbow themed one. Olivia is very excited about it:

And finally, here is a Space Ship one. The numbers are still small in this picture (sorry Sophie), so you can just color it however you want!

Have fun!

Preschool color-by-number

Here's round two of the color-by-number pictures I drew for Olivia. I'm always amazed that she had the patience to color the big areas of one color. Click on the picture below to be able to print out your own,

And here is the finished result:

Art project progress

Thought I would share what I've been working this spring break. I'm almost done! This is for the college of optometry art competition. All of the shading is individual vertical lines drawn with a fine-tipped Sharpie marker. Many, many lines...

Sea Adventures - end result!

Here's Olivia's finished copy of the coloring book. She had a lot of fun doing it, but I think she wanted more little areas to color in.

Sea Adventure color-by-number

I've been sending a lot of time with Olivia this week since I'm on spring break and Katie is super busy writing her book. Olivia and I have been drawing and coloring a lot, and we did a color-by-number page in her little Kindergarten math book. She really really liked it, so I thought it would be fun to make another one for her. So this afternoon, while she was taking a nap, I drew out this little picture here. I think it turned out pretty nice. I thought I would share it with you! Click on the picture to see the pdf.

Once you print it out, just color this boxes in the left hand corner with the colors you want to use; that'll make it easier to use if your kid can't read yet.

Have fun!

Where I am meant to live

I just found the spot where I am supposed to live:

This is the corner of Bryan Street and Lewis Street.

This is found in the city of Bryan, Ohio. It's kind of in the middle of nowhere. See?

I found out some interesting things about this great city. First, there are only about 8,000 people that live here. Second, it is known for manufacturing three famous items: Dum-Dum suckers, candy canes, and Etch-A-Sketches. Katie said that of all the candy that could represent me, perhaps Dum-Dums represent me the best. I resent this statement, because Dum-Dums are pretty trashy candy. If only Bryan, OH would manufacture Jolly Rancher Jellybeans...those things are the absolute best tasting candy in the world.

Bryan, Ohio looks like a pretty nice place.
