What I'm Listening To: Penny & Me (acoustic version) by Hanson
If you get a chance, check out this video on iTunes along with the free podcast episodes of the making of their documentary film "Strong Enough To Break". There is a lot of good buzz about it already. It tells the story of these three very talented musicians (and brothers) on a journey making a new album on their own indie record label after years of trouble with the corporate music industry and artistic interference for the almighty dollar. They have sold 15 million records worldwide and their anticipated new album "The Walk" is coming May 22. Click below to check them out.
OK, OK, I'm done...here is my post for the day....
This is one of those times that I am so thankful to see while I am homeschooling. My son Jack takes his sketchpad everywhere he goes and as soon as we get to where we are going (in this case Buckingham Palace), he plops down and starts sketching. It is wonderful. This is what you don't get sitting in a desk in school for six hours. Somedays I need to remind myself of this. I love that I am able to let him delve into the things that he loves...particularly art. This is a subject that his previous school did nothing with and when you have a visual child (who is much like his mother that way) they can get left on the sideline or even worse...BORED.
I snapped this from quite a distance with one of my other lenses and he had no clue I was taking it. This is one of those images I will treasure away in my heart as something quite special to me.
Would you all be interested to see Jacks sketch that day along with the subject of his attention...if so please click below to see the boys' blog page.
