Sonidos Serranos

Sonidos Serranos: Sounds of the Sierras...
Reflecting some of my family's interests: God's wonderful creation (especially mountains and hills!), music, and language...

Psalm 121:1-2 (NASB)

I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
From where shall my help come?
My help comes from the LORD,
Who made heaven and earth.

Two Little Scholars!

Love ’em!

1st Day of School 2015!

Reminiscing, as she starts the second half of elementary school and he starts K-4…

Remembering nostalgically her artwork at that age...

And smiling again at the hilariously creative comments she would make about her drawings...

In this one, my arms (I was informed) are by my sides.
That's why you cant see them.

Just today, he decided that he wanted to copy this drawing of hers. (And I just realized: He’s exactly the age she was when she drew the original! Fun stuff!)

Her artwork is, as you would expect, much more sophisticated now.

This one was inspired by the artist Holly Hobbie
in the book we gave her for her birthday.

Just for fun, here’s a glimpse at a horse drawing from three years ago:

We’re so thankful for our Sweet Little Lady – and for her excitement about life in general. She inspires her little brother not only to draw but also to love learning in general.

This is his second attempt ever at drawing a horse; the occasion was Aunt Shannah’s birthday.

The arrow is a favorite theological allusion:
“Someone Invisible is up in the Sky...”

His 1st attempt at drawing a manger scene

His drawing of sheep: A Mommy & Baby

And these are definitely favorites inspired by her favorite literature!

Aslan Singing Narnia into Existence

Again, inspired by her work, he attempted his first drawing of a Lion; the occasion was Aunt Ruth’s birthday.

Note the arrows again – a favorite theological allusion
often included in works of art!

And the latest works of art were inspired by E’s current science studies:

He seems to have understood some of the basics... (Or maybe he was remembering a favorite conversation we have: Hugs are for Mommy what sunshine and water are for plants!”)

Note the motion of the water droplets...
