Sick Day

Sick Day–for Sketchbook Project
My poor little munchkin is home sick today. She’s so miserable, with a headache and fever. I hate it when their sick because I hate to see them suffering. But it gives me an opportunity to draw a stationary child which doesn’t happen very often. Here, she’s watching Night at the Museum 2, and barely cracking a smile at the funny parts…awwww….

Fishing for leeches

Fishing for Leeches — Sketchbook Project

This is from a photo of my kids at the lake this summer. My husband has a band, and he was hired to play for a wedding near Tatlayoko Lake, at a ranch way out in the middle of the wilderness…Bracewell’s Lodge. We were given this rustic cabin on a leech abundant lake to stay in…no electricity or running water, with mice running over us in the middle of the night…but it was still a blast. The kids had so much fun, and instead of being grossed out by leeches, they were fascinated by them…so much so that they were obsessed with catching them, which is what they were doing in this picture.
