Back to School!

It's that time of year again! Time to meet the new teacher and, hopefully, make new friends! (Click on the image for a larger view.) Good luck to my two sons for another great year. I volunteered at the middle school this morning, helping the sixth graders open their lockers and find their classrooms. It's a big adjustment to a much bigger school, and the passing periods are a zoo! Most of the kids were fine, but a few seemed a little panicky when they couldn't get their lockers open. I did my best to reassure them that they'd get the hang of it in time. I know to a mom of preschoolers, sixth graders look gigantic, but to me, they look so little! It's all relative, I guess.

Oh, Baby

I reeeally love drawing babies: their round little bodies, big heads, and dimpled hands. My kids say I have baby radar and can spot any baby within a 100 foot radius.
