Alex and His Watercolors :: One Hundred Thirty Four

Next week is the final meeting of his watercolor class. I think he's going to miss it. He's had a great semester, thanks to interesting and talented teachers, and mentors, generous classmates, inspiring opportunities. Maria and I have been benefitting, too... he's shared helpful suggestions, and concepts with us, so now we are all looking forward to the next class in fall.

Edinburgh Street :: One Hundred Thirty Two

Alex's trip to Scotland still inspires him, all of us, actually. I think this painting of an Edinburgh street is suitable for framing. I love that he stuck it on the fridge... it took my breath away when I stumbled into the kitchen to fix a school morning breakfast. It's beautiful. It also reminds me that finals week is coming up, that soon Max and Maria will be finishing their school year, that summer and summer plans are just around the bend. What a great deal we have to look forward to. And where will the road take us?

The Cure :: One Hundred Thirty One

Socks, rest, tea, honey... peanut butter on toast? Searching for a cure for sore throat, fever, aches, sneezes, malaise.

This is Our Lab :: One Hundred Thirty

Just after you pass the cabinet of curiosities, where the Wire Woman stands silently, enter the laboratory.

The Lookout :: One Hundred Twenty Nine

He's finally learned that going out this window isn't worth the bother, but he's asked us, "Please do not replace the screen, because I needs to watch the traffic, dogs, walkers, joggers, birds, bunnies, the comings and goings. Meow." So we indulge him. He is our lookout.

{My computer is working again. It only took hours talking to and waiting on hold with Apple Support. Eventually our call was disconnected, they never called back, but Geoff gave me some helpful suggestions. I don't want to talk about how much I want to quit technology right now. But trust me, it's a lot. I want to quit a lot.}

Printing Australopithecus Africanus :: One hundred Twenty Eight

Maria and Geoff helped with William's 3-D printed Taung Child; they are removing the supports... excess plastic between the two plates that William created to assemble a complete skull.
