Shalevs art class:canvas painting.. lines and shapes

This school year I have begun teaching the kids some basic skills in cooking, art, and music.. as well as the basics in recognizing letters and numbers, counting, shapes and colours, etc..

I dont usually take photos of their 'schooling hour' but their art 'classes' have been so much fun that I've so enjoyed capturing these shots for the kids to see and rememeber their works of art and their progess. Below Shalev is learning about colours, lines (keeping within the lines) and making patterns with lines. He had a lot of fun doing this one.
Nana and Popa bought these fun little 'garden foam stickers' for the kids.. here is what shalev did with them...
Autumn has arrived in the hallway! The kids have been filling it with the fresh feeling (and smell) of Autumn.

Our walk amongst the trees..

We dressed in Autumn colours and went for an 'autumn walk' through some near by forests. It was a beautiful day.. a beautiful location.. and a beautiful moment to capture the children 'one by one'.

...and to top off this awesome adventure, dave stumbled upon these fantastc half planks of wood. They have a beautiful deep wood smell, and are now one by one being selected for different crafts.

Yoav is 2!

Last weekend we celebrated Yoav's second birthday.. wow, our middle son has officially entered the 'terrific twos'. (yes, I am trying to be optimistic!)

We celebrated with a few friends, a few balloons and a few goodies to munch on, including the Fireman Sam cake which took a night and a morning to complete.. But i just got such a 'jump of joy' seeing Yoavs face when he finally recieved his cake at the party.

The House is meant to be on fire!! (It was a real 'throw-together').

We love you our big special 2 year old...
so what surprises do you have instore for mummy this year?
