effort

this book project is more work than I thought it'd be, but worth it. So it's not done yet.

my little author

Ya so I haven't been keeping the blog up too well, I'll do better I swear......maybe.

Anyway, we just dealt with Jasper having some nasty chest cold, but he's back in the saddle rockin the school work. He reads like crazy now, all you have to do is leave out a book and he'll read it. We were at our friends house and his friend showed him a book he got and Jasper sat down and read it right away lol.
So to further encourage our boys to read my buddy Patrick and I sat down with our boys and started writing a short book, with them creating the story.
When I had the idea to do this I thought it'd be easy. Not really, getting two six year olds to agree on an idea is like nailing jello to the wall, but we finally got that jello nailed.
So we got the characters, their attributes, story and initial layout done today. Tomorrow we attack the illustration side and hopefully finish. Patrick and I will draw the story and the boys will color our artwork.
Been interesting so far and hopefully I'll be able to scan the book after were done so I can share it with everyone.
