Fighting Bad Guys in Cordele

Trey has a neighborhood girl friend who goes to his school and is quite the tomboy. She loves fighting imaginary bad guys with him (often in costume) and playing superheroes. She comes over some school day afternoons and they have a blast running around the yard together. They took these photos themselves one afternoon this week.



Tracing Transformers

Trey loves the old 1980s Transformers show and often makes Lego creations that transform like the characters. On a recent visit to McKay Used Book Store in Chattanooga, Heidi picked up a book that teaches kids how to draw the actual characters from the old show. Trey loves that when he uses tracing paper on the images his resulting drawing looks exactly like the REAL deal.

Heidi’s Portrait Session with Trey

For Christmas I got Heidi the impressive Pencil for her iPad to (hopefully) get her back into drawing and sketchy despite her busy schedule. Trey has also been interested in giving it a spin. Today he had Heidi sit down for a portrait session in which he drew her on the iPad. He took it very seriously and after finishing his masterpiece he showed it to her and proudly said, “You’re so beautiful.”

Belated NYE Fireworks

I hauled some fireworks up to my parents’ in Virginia for New Year’s Eve but we found out they were illegal in their county. So I hauled them back down to Georgia! We set them off along with some sparklers in the front yard about a week late.
