pie tester

sunday naps

This morning I'm wondering if homeschooled children get a sick day when the teacher is sick? Actually, it's nothing that bad, I'm just beginning to feel the achy cold that my children suffered through all last week.

cat naps

Sunday was rainy and gray here, a good day for naps. I found myself tucked in the flannel sheets of my bed with a little girl and a loudly purring cat, who looks to me like she was quite happy to have slipped inside from the rain.

my grandfather's farm

Saturday we all went over to my Grandpa Sayre's farm with my cousin Katie to take pictures of the new calves.

pie tester, if you know what I mean

And while none of them were very cooperative with my camera, (we'll have to wait until Katie shares her pictures), I did get a few shots of the resident "pie-tester". Who felt it her duty to stick a shoe in each one, if you know what I mean…..

Alright, on to the good stuff.

Roz Streeten, the designer and illustrator of the Rosie Flo books
, sent me an email over the weekend. She shared this neat video of her girls (for whom the Rosie Flo name came from) working on the books. She also told me about the gallery for the books, and anyone who submits a colored illustration is included. There is some great inspiration in the gallery.

Now for the winners. Please send me an email with your mailing info, so I can pass it on to Chronicle. Thanks!

Rosie Flo book:

Such cute books for budding artists! Thanks.

The Duck!Rabbit! book:

Oh wow, either of those giveaways would be awesome. please add my name. thank you.

  1. Looks like a fun day. I think I might have to go over one day and do that. Maybe when it’s warmer.

    Growing up we used to have cow pie fights. We would get a whole pocket full of rocks and head out to the fields. We would run around and try and splat each other as much as possible. The dirtyiest person was the loser. My poor Mom! 🙂http://sprucehill.typepad.com/

  2. nash only naps if he is really sick. It’s been that way since he was under a year. Poor me. On another note, I’m planning a trip up your way this fall- will be staying a night w/ Jennifer, among other friends. MUST SEE YOU THIS TIME!!!

  3. hope you feel better…take care of yourself. we definitely take sick days when mama’s down. sounds like a fun day at your grandfather’s farm.

  4. Happy kitty.

    Hey, if guys should ever happen to be in Massachusetts, you should visit the Eric Carle Museum. It’s got a bunch of his work–there was an exhibit on the 40th anniversary of the Very Hungry Caterpillar when we went last week–plus two galleries of other children’s book artists. I was bummed because one gallery was closed for installation of the work of a woman whose name escapes me. She did Mike Mulligan and his Steam Shovel, which was one of my little brother’s favorites when we were tiny, 20+ years ago!

    Just wanted to say that I, too, was a pie tester. =) I love the smell of pies. Crazy, I know.

    Oh, and I homeschool too and I most definitely take sick days. Hope you feel better!

  6. When it was me feeling bad we all got sick days. Curled up on the couch together and watched a famiy movie in between naps. 🙂

    Hope your feeling better!
