Computer time

So we went to the store today to buy my oldest child her very own lap top. For awhile now she has been using my computer for her online school work. Now that she is in 4th grade I felt that she was ready to have her own computer for school work, research, etc. Let me just say, when we pulled up to the store and walked into the computer area she was so excited! She ended up picking out a Pink Dell. If only she knew that in a way this was a gift for me too, no more sharing my PC either! lol

Art

Some people may not look at art as really being a subject. Some may not realize there is more to art than just paint, glue, clay, etc.  I know that my children love art not only because it is fun but also because it allows them absolute freedom to explore their creativeness and learn about history in a different way.
Learning about different artist and their style, this is what makes art so much more then just something interesting to look at.

One of my personal favorites is Leonardo da Vinci; his Mona Lisa, Last Supper ~>need I say more!

Art to me is one of the best subjects to learn about!
