Manga!

I had a friend teach me how to draw manga.  So far we only had enough time to learn faces and hair.  This is my favorite of all my sketches.

A Colette Update!!!

Colette has this thing with looking at the camera... It's handy!  (I think that she thinks it's interesting looking)


I'm tired!

Hee Hee Hee!  Big sister Stella is really funny!

We finally found out that she liked playing peek-a-boo!

Linoleum Stamps

For school I had to make a linoleum stamp.  How to you like it?

This is the stamp that it made when tested out!
Let me know what you think ^.^

Poems

Look at the left of the page where it says pages.  Forgive me for the weird format. . . and white spacing. . . yeah... that tells you what I did... (copy and pasting is a wonderful invention!!!)   I will have some of my favorite and my families favorite poems there.  Hope you enjoy!  (Yes, I will list whose favorite poems they are. . . So far Evan and Daddy have not given me any. . . they can't remember off the top of their head what poems they like).  Just to tell all of you readers, I am not having a random spree with poems, but really, I have to collect poems and make a book for school.  Although this is for school, I found this really cool website... If you like a certain poet, and don't know the names of their poems, you can look them up, and it will have a list of all their poems.

The Aurora Borealis
           
            The Aurora’s (aurora borealis, aurora australis) occur when electrons that are highly charged from solar wind, interact with the elements in the earth’s atmosphere. The solar winds stream to earth at about 1 million miles per hour.  Once they reach their destination they follow the lines made by the magnetic force caused by the earth’s core.  Next they flow through the magnetosphere, the teardrop-shaped part of a highly charged electrical and magnetic fields.
            Once near the earth’s upper atmosphere the electrons encounter atoms of oxygen and nitrogen at altitudes from 20 to 200 miles above the earth.  What atom is struck and the altitude at the meeting is what the aurora’s color relies on.  According to How Stuff Works,
 
·                    “Green - oxygen, up to 150 miles in altitude
·                    Red - oxygen, above 150 miles in altitude
·                    Blue - nitrogen, up to 60 miles in altitude
·                    Purple/violet - nitrogen, above 60 miles in altitude”

The shifts and flows of the magnetic and electric forces reaction with each other are seen as the aurora’s “dance”.
The Auroras are mostly found in the Arctic and Antarctic, or other more northern areas such as Alaska.  These beautiful lights are a wonderfully designed and show God’s creativity, and greatness.
