Cool picture story

Jared drew this yesterday, the bottom picture was first and then he did the 2nd and 3rd. He didn't do these at the same time or looking at the other picture.
I know this because he was looking for them all today, they were in different places in the house. He draws all over the place, not one location.

He said a mixture of Zelda and Runescape is what inspired these. I hope you can see how they connect.

I'm always in awe of his drawings. He will be turning 7 this weekend, I think he has real talent.

Jared's Titles

The latest thing around here is wrestling. I don't care for it personally but the kids have gotten into it. Brennan got Smack Down vs. Raw and TNA impact for the PS2 and they play and then have their own matches. They have started watching Friday Night Smackdown on TV.

Jared has created at least 30 titles and these are just a few.

Cassie made this one.

Several of the blogs I read have a post titled Thankful Thursday.

Well it's Friday now but I just wanted to say I am extremely thankful for AIR CONDITIONING!!!!!!

We are having record high heat and humidity. I don't breathe well when it's muggy.
This is unusual for June, it's usually dry but we have had a rainy spring and there is a ton of moisture in the air.

Our van a/c is broken and I had some errands to run yeterday, I was melting to say the least.

I'm staying in the house today :)

Jared is constantly drawing. It's almost like he needs to draw, it's part of him. He expresses himself and he draws about anything and everything.
I'm cleaning and sorting and packing away many of his pictures. I just wanted to post a few recent ones.

Link and Roy

Links from Zelda the four swords

Spongebob and Mr. Krabs

This is one of my favorites.
He has done a ton of wrestling ones lately also. I may post a few of the titles he made later.

Giant Leopard Moth

One of our caterpillars was a giant leopard
Cassie named him Giant. She really liked him, she would play with him a lot.

Here is his cocoon.

Just today I was looking at the cocoons and thinking they must all be dead because it's been several weeks now.

Just a few minutes ago we saw this.

Giant is now a moth.

Apparantly there is a bad guy on the loose. I found this hanging on my bedroom door.

This was on my bathroom door, equal rights...

spanking, hitting, abuse

I have absolutely no respect for anyone who hits a child.

If you are a reformed spanker than my hat is off to you, congratulations!

If you hit your kid in the name of God, shame on you. I have heard people say they spank out of love. That is some kind of twisted love. We don't hit people we love.

It's no different than a man who hits his girlfriend/wife. He has serious issues and he will claim to love that person even though he abuses them.

That is NOT love!

So many people get caught in the abuse cycle, stuck in the trap.

They start to believe it is actually their fault that the person they love hits them.

There is absolutely no valid reason to hit a child.

None whatsoever!

If my husband ever raised his hand at me like he was going to hit me our relationship would NEVER be the same. It would be forever tarnished, if he actually hit me I would leave him in a second.

My husband is awesome and would never lay a hand on me in anger but I needed to make my point.

If he ever hit our children I would be gone. I will not tolerate abuse of any kind.
You do not hit children, it's all abuse.

I am so disheartened by people who spank their kids and believe it's ok.

Did you ever think how that child feels?

Did you ever for a second imagine what that will do to them for the rest of their life?

I was not spanked as a child.

I was punched and slapped in my early teen years.

What's the difference?

The emotional wound is the same, the physical wound is in a different spot.

Just being hit once, never ever leaves you, it never leaves.

I implore you, please think twice before you ever lay a hand on your child or loved one.
