Enjoying our zoo-pass - First twin zoo trip

Remember his name

This is my little brother. It's hard to find or capture a serious picture of him. He's a goof and almost always makes a face other than a smile. However, this silly man is super serious about his art. 
If I compiled a list of all the things that he's good at I'd need several posts. He draws, paints, does pointelism, plays piano, and on and on. But, he is most passionate about film-making, and it shows. He's 15 going on 30. He's taking every film class in school and acceling like he was made for this stuff. In one of his classes last semester, he was surrounded by seniors but after his teacher saw his craft he said "You see this guy. Remember his name." 
I'm confident that someday I'll be writing a post about his newest film winning dozens of awards. 
In the meantime, you can check out some of his short films (which have one the very proud big-sister award):

Notice his schnazy equiptment! I'm thankful for parents who nurture all of our passions with the tools we needed for success:)

Finn climbs like he's being timed. Fast and fearless. 

My new Art Studio (and the best husband EVER!)

For those of you that don't know, Mark refurbished a kick-pottery wheel for my birthday. Soon after, he decided that I would need my own creative space. I thought it was a nice idea, but I kind of thought it would never happen. Our plate is pretty full at the moment and time for projects like that is in short supply. True to his word, that man delivered. 
This is our new studio. It's a serene space with lots of natural light. I love it so much!
I've still got some decorating to do but here it is...

Homeschool Snapshot - Botany Class

Over the next couple weeks we're studying botany. To kick things off we planted "sensitive" plants. 
They went in the dirt today so we'll have to track their progress.
