Griffin's Amazing Blog

Griffin kept pestering me to add different things to this blog (put this video on there! and this picture of Indiana Jones!).  Since he seemed interested in the process, I asked him if he'd like to start his own blog.  He jumped on the idea.  He picked out a template he liked, a title and voila he became a blogger.  I gave him a short crash course in using blogger and he picked it up really fast. Once I get him logged in he is able to create a new post, add pictures and captions, he even knows how to tag his posts.  Today he figured out how to read comments and has been checking to see if anyone has commented on his posts every ten minutes.  Its incredible to see him do a Google Image search, drag the picture to our desktop and then create a post and upload the picture to blogger.  I've been doing the videos for him, but thats next on our list for him to learn.  He does source all the videos himself, usually from YouTube (I make him use YouTube for children so I don't have to worry too much about what kind of content pops up).  I can already see myself turning into that mom that goes, "Griffin, my computers doing something funny, can you come fix it plllllleeassse?"

You can check out his blog here.

"Fluffy" Art

"Two Dragons In Love"

"Snowman in the Snow"

Parker's been making assemblage art since the day she got her hands on a bottle of glue.  Today I found her playing around with some fiber fill or "fluffy" as she calls it.  Her ability to make something out of "nothing" continues to astound me.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Aunt Jessi made Parker's dress and I added the heart.  Daddy made Fin's Dr.Who Valentine's shirt

The heart I made for Parker

Griffin's Dr.Who Valentine's Day cards.  I'm curious to know if any of his friends will have any idea what these are about!

"A dream starts with a cup of tea."
"That sounds nice.  What do you mean by that?  Did you hear that somewhere?"
"Its just something I like to say."
