The picture above shows my son's buddies. We played 'school' with them one afternoon. Well, like mother, like son. I do hope he chooses something else though -it's soooo exhausting. (tough day yesterday; I'll spare you the details as this is my place to focus on the bright side of life - see banner)
Well, "don't you just love New York in the fall? Makes me wanna buy school supplies". I know what you're thinking: "has she gone nuts? N.Y. isn't in Greece". No, I haven't gone nuts, not yet anyway!!! :)
That's a quote from my favourite film.
Haven't you guessed yet?
Who said it? You, sitting in front of your laptop?
You're right. "You've Got Mail"!!!
Sorry if I tired you with that but I can't help it; it makes me happy.
So on that note, I stayed up late Monday evening, night rather to sort out my material - I should have done it during the summer break but I couldn't (some of you know why).
I beautified my folders...
... and added smiley stickers on them.
One more thing I like doing when the weather becomes cooler and we don't go out as much is to leaf through my museum books. I have a whole shelf of them. The painting below is...
... from the Vincent Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam. I'm not satisfied with my pictures these days. If I manage to take some decent ones I'm thinking of making a museum series with, say, one museum a week, with links to their websites and everything. What do you say?

Little one wanted to play with his 'professions' puzzle. He's had it for two years and never gets bored with it. I don't mind doing it again and again as we talk about more things every time and he enriches his vocabulary (teacher talk, sorry!)
the watering can
and the mail ( I loooove getting mail - but you already know that!)
He didn't use to draw specific images, just fill the paper with colour in a second and leave -sometimes with amazing results if I may add. But now he's making faces. The line for the mouth is supposed to be straight; this is not a sad deer!!! The colourful stripes have the days of the week written on them.
