2008 must be "Contest Year"!
We all did a happy screaming dance this morning when we saw that Lily won the Haiku contest over at Adam Rex's blog... 180 entries, two top prizes. Congrats Lily! Here's the piece of original art she's won, illustrating the haiku she wrote:

Go ahead -- Guess what Isaac made this picture out of...
Marker? Wrong again.

(You've heard of the book Blueberries for Sal? Dad thinks we should call this Blueberries for "Sail"!)

While the other kids were gone last week, two year old Elijah took off drawing. And for the first time he's making identifiable things. He gets really excited as he runs up to tells us what the pictures are. Here's his first batch!
