A couple of weeks ago, we decided to start the princess off with her Kindergarten lessons. She is 4.5 years old, but already interested in a lot of the things the prince is doing in second grade. She sits through the read-alouds, participates in the science projects, does simple addition, and retains most of his memory work.

So, we started out slowly to see how things go. She will be using My Father’s World (MFW) Kindergarten program, but doing Science and History with the prince.  The first 10 days of the MFW program is learning about the creation story. By the second day, she said “I’m only in Kindergarten, and it is soooo easy.” I may have my work cut out for me!

After the first 10 days, we moved into the regular part of the program by learning about the sun. The sun reminds us that “S” says “ssssss” and that Jesus is the Light of the World. At the end of the week, she got to paint a picture of the sun. She was suppose to concentrate on doing a pattern of alternating red and orange rays for the sun. She mostly worked alone while I washed dishes. We chatted along, and I checked over my shoulder to make sure there were no big paint catastrophes. Here is what she did:
sun Isn’t that beautiful? I had to ask what the parts were in the lower left corner and toward the right-hand side. They didn’t seem to fit the pattern she created.

Have you figured out what it is???

“Oh, that’s cyberspace.”

I should have known!

    Hi! Welcome to TTT! I see you got the linky working. Sorry about that. Your email isn't attached to your comment, so I couldn't reply to your comment directly. (ie: "show my email address" in the preferences) So it took me until tonight to get over here to respond, then i saw you had it up and running!

    Welcome! Her artwork is wonderful! LOVE that quote - write that on the back and frame it for sure :) Have a great week and enjoy kindergarten!

    Stunning picture. This is one story you will be telling when she is all grown up!

    Love it! My eldest once painted a lovely picture of a sun, and then - to my utter horror - proceeded to cover the entire thing with blue and red paint. I managed to bite my tongue long enough to ask him to tell me about his painting. "It's called 'Sun Behind Clouds,' Mommy." I was so glad I bit my tongue. When it came right down to it, his finished painting WAS much more interesting than the sun on it's own had been - so much so, that we had it professionally framed and it still hangs in our home, which makes him very proud - even 6 years later! Thanks for sharing your art story and reminding me of mine!
