MckLinky Blog Hop - Show Off Your Art

We are a homeschooling family. My 7 year old son loves art. Since I hated art in grade school and am not what I consider an artist or someone who can teach it well, Nico takes an art class outside of our home. This is just a sampling of his art work from last year. We now decorate our home with his art work and my photography.

Several pictures Nico, 7 yo, drew and painted in art class.

This picture now is framed and hangs by our Christmas tree. (This way Luca won't grab the baby Jesus from the manger ;-)

I have been having fun using the Lightroom photo editing program to edit some of my photos. It has been 7 years since I have had professional photos taken of my children. I enjoy getting the real life photos as they don't sit still like that anyway.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Your son does great work for his age. He clearly has a natural talent.
I so enjoyed following your blog about the challenges you have faced with your oldest sons' health concerns. I will be remembering to lift him in prayer for his upcoming surgery in November.
You have a beautiful family BTW!
