something exciting happened on the way to the kitchen

I have some pretty big news. My husband has published his very first book! After many years of writing, shelving, writing, shelving and finally illustrating in a sporadic 10 months, Road Trip with Rabbit and Squash is complete.

We are very excited and think (HECK< I KNOW!) you will enjoy it, too!

Please let me know what you think about the website and the blog, and of course feel free to share your excitement as well.

The book is available for purchase and will be a lovely addition to any home, school, or public library!

Illustration Friday ~ Play!

Our contributions to Illustration Friday
by GKB age 8
Today's Illustration Friday topic is "Play". I adore what GKB has drawn. She drew the American Sign Language sign for "play" in the upper left corner . (thumb and pinky out ~ hang loose style ~ pivot at the wrist) She also included her 'favorite people to play with'. What I love most is that they all have a piece of paper in their hands. This is because this morning (after a sleep over with a friend visiting from the other side of the country) all the kids were sitting at the table drawing various things. These pictures are pure imagination. They feed their active play later in the day, and listening to the chatter that takes place while they draw is unparalleled! For that very reason she included a pencil as a "favorite playmate" !

I will update this if her brother gives me something to post. Right now they are all far too busy playing =)
