Dorian's new easel

We just got this easel of good old craigslist for $10! I love craigslist.
He loves drawing and painting so I have been keep my eyes open for a nice wood one.
Dorian has really enjoyed it so far, we need to get him some more wipe board pens.
He loves drawing stuff and being able to wipe it off. The other side is a chalk board and it also has a paper roll and that can be used for drawing or painting. I am sure it will get lots of use!

Future herpetologist?

Dorian and Ashar were outside the other day and Dorian said "whats that dad?" and Ash just thought it was grass, but then looked closer and it was a gardner snake! They picked him up and kept him as a "pet" until I got home from the coffee shop to show me. Then we let him go back to his family. Dorian was so excited to hold it and pat it, I think Ash was just as excited though!

Dorian loves to color. He does not like crayons but loves markers.
Here are some power rangers he colored and also a butterfly.
As you can see he loves using all different colors and is a perfectionist when it comes to coloring.
He also loves to stack these beads. The cat loves to knock them down and play with them as you can see we only have 1 yellow bead left.


Dorian and Kait like to play in the cot together. I found them being so sweet with each other reading books and then they saw me and my trusty camera and starting hiding under the books!


Ashar took Dorian to the Children's Museum last week and Dorian came back as a cat!
Dorian said he had lots of fun and that he liked playing in the ambulance and playing in the grocery store they have at the Children's Museum. Here are some photos of him as a kitty and also Aussie and Dorian resting on the couch together.


Here is Dorian making a rainbow with his shapes. He really enjoys making things with the shapes and sorting them.

Another reason we are lucky we can homeschool!

Over 2 million children are now homeschooled in the United States. On standardized tests, homeschooled children outperform matched peers in the public schools by a wide margin, and they are comparatively more successful in getting admitted to competitive colleges.

Its April already!

Time goes by when we are having fun!
Here is Dorian doing some school work, it was drawing a line under big and little things with 2 different colors. Then he colored the objects. Then we did a easter craft we cut out an egg and glued and put colored balls all over it. Dorian did a great job as you can see! Only color he would not use is green, he does not like it right now.
