|Avery loves drawing pictures of the 5 of us. Can you guess who is who? Yeah, me neither ; )|
|A crazy hair day for Harper ; )|
|Norah's writing journal from class, often focuses on her love for one or more of her family members. It melts a mama's heart!|
|Clearly, we need to work on her spelling, but this made me smile. Lucas went with Norah to the Goodwill to pick out supplies for her very own art corner. He put up curtains to section it off and everything and she was, as you can see, just thrilled.|
Surprisingly, it is as it turns out, not all that different from my current living situation. The girls spread their papers, crayons, markers, paints, and cut-outs across every surface of our dining room table. But now as the one who always has to clean almost everything up, it's not so much fun, even for me a fellow artist (and a messy, cluttered girl at heart.)
So, I decided it's time to start Cherry House Gallery, a series on Life as a Cherry dedicated to photographing their work and then feeling free to (shhh, don't tell) dispose of (some, not all) of it.
Right now, family is a big theme in most of their drawings. I love seeing how they view themselves, right at the heart of a smiling, happy home. I wouldn't have it any other way. I intend to frame some of these a la The Royal Tenenbaums, but for now they will be happily displayed on the Cherry House Gallery.
