Jacob's Eye for Art

Jacob picked this ad up today in the store. He told me a little bit about the squares in the store, but I was distracted and wondered why he brought it home, but it didn't take long to figure it out. He went straight for the crayons and paper and began to copy the ad.
Where others might see just stuff on sale, he saw colors and shapes that intrigued him as an artist. If you look closely, you can see that the yellow part does have separate squares and that he filled in between with yellow as well. And look at the right side of his page; he colored each jelly bean in the correct color order.
I shouldn't be so amazed when I see the creator God reflected in my children, but I am, and I love it. May God use my son's gifts for His Kingdom and His glory!


I was privileged to be present for my friend Erica's giving birth to her little Jordyn on Saturday evening. He weighed 8 pounds 10 ounces and is very healthy! God's blessings on this new little one!

Crafting/Schooling at the Osters

This is what we look like most mornings between 9 and 12.

Junior Asparagus, Bob, and Larry
Okay, maybe it's just because I'm the momma, but I think that asparagus is pretty great. He didn't have a pic to look at or anything. And I noticed on the back that he had tried the asparagus with the squiggle lines drawn horizontally (for the top part) and didn't like it, so he started over again and drew them vertically. Wow.
Naomi is definitely more in to making jewelry with lots of sparkle when it comes time for her to make art.

Visit with Charlie, Sophie, and Ellie

We love this room!
When bath time comes, just throw them all in together. : )

More SNOW!

Yes, that does mark about 4 1/2 inches; that was nearly 2 hours ago, and it's still snowing!
She begged, so even though she's still sick, she got to go out for a few minutes.
Making a snow man (and later his dog) at the neighbor's house.
WOW! at the snow!
