New Endeavors



While we are still healing up from the marathon, Cheryl and I have taken up kick-boxing. This is a lot of FUN. We've gone three times now. We now know the difference between a jab, upper-cut and a hook. Watch out for Cheryl!... she has a MEAN round-house kick.

Another of our new endeavors is doodling. We are taking a doodling class by Joanne Sharpe. You might wonder if we actually need a class to doodle... the answer is YES! Doodling is ART!Well, maybe we're not making art yet, but we are having a lot of fun making pictures using a lot of different techniques:

Here is the cover for my doodle album:



We are told to cast aside our inhibitions and draw like a second grader:



We started with a doodle tree:



Here is my first doodle flower garden... FAIL!



Now that is a doodle flower garden! This is with pen and ink.



Here is another one that I did with pen and watercolor. I don't like this technique as much:



Cheryl wanted me to share her doodle flower garden:



There is more to come with acrylic and paint markers... stay tuned.

Biking the Arroyo

The three of us went on a 8.75 mile ride through the Arroyo today. It was a great day to ride!



It's still early in the year, so there is water running through...



Up the long steep hill, climbing out of the arroyo...



Here's a little video of the kiddos:

Have fun with Uncle George, Hun!
