new piece in progress

wow, it's been forever

I've been virtually dark in all of my social media due to work, but I think it's time to get back into the world. Quick sketch I did of Paige for her documentary film screening invitation.

a little bragging

Paige, a high school sophomore, just passed the test making her eligible to take college courses next year. The best part is, Denver Public Schools will pay for it since she is attending the online high school. The course is actually held at a community college, so it will be a great opportunity for her to meet some new people.

She's only going to take one class, as she already has a heavy schedule, plus her film class, but any chance she gets to chip away at her core classes is fantastic.

3 gardens urban co-op

As some of you may know, we are pretty obsessed with urban homesteading. From converting our yard into planting space, raising honey bees and canning everything we can, we're doing it. This year we took it a step further. We have invited two other families to be part of a garden co-op. This way we have more space for raising a variety of produce - plus we get to share our experience with our friends who want to become more aware of where their food comes from.

We have started a blog documenting this experiment. Like this project, it is in the early stages. Take a look and see what you think.

sweet 16

Paige turned 16 this weekend, it's hard to believe. It seems like yesterday we were bringing her home from the hospital. For her 16th, she wanted a party with her family, so grandparents and aunts flew in. Catching up with everyone was wonderful. Not only did Paige turn 16 and have a great party, she got her braces off. I think that was truly the highlight.

some quick pics

We had a great holiday. Below are a few quick pictures from Christmas day, horseback riding, the girls sewing, and a new in progress painting I'm working on.

almost Christmas

It is almost Christmas, and the family has been busy indeed. There have been school performances, parties, shopping and baking. I am looking forward to the holiday, but wish it would slow down a bit. Things seem to be moving too quickly.

The girls are growing quickly as well. It seems that overnight they have grown an inch or become more beautiful. They are all doing well, and excited to be on their holiday break.

Last night we went to see the lights at the Denver zoo. Denver has been unusually warm for this time of year, so we were able to stay longer than usual. The photos didn't turn out to well, but you get the idea.
