Show and Tell Tuesday

Last week's debut seemed successful -- you're all so kind to check out my kid's work! -- so here's this week's contribution to Show and Tell Tuesday.

Urban Kid 1 learned about Ansel Adams last week at Art class. They checked out the photo below, called Autumn Tree Against Cathedral Rocks, Yosemite, 1944.
Then they did a project using tempera paint, tape and sponges on pieces of cloth.

Urban Kid 1 was, as ever, very proud and excited.

It's supposed to be kind of nice here today in Chicago. Which means that it will be even nicer in St. Louis. Hopefully, she can get outside and get a real taste of Spring!

Happy Tuesday to everyone!

Very cool, UK1!

Now, who is Tom? (On your Meez T-shirt) Is this your husband? The MySpace guy? Initials for something? These are the kinds of questions that keep me up nights!

Hi! I just saw your comment at Jenny's (Home is Where You Start From) and thought I'd introduce myself to another Chicagoland homeschooling mom!

We live in the Western Suburbs, but we're trying to sell our house and move to Kenosha.

We visit your neck of the woods sometimes--my brother-in-law's family lives in the vicinity.

I love your skyline picture, especially with the trees!
