Sunday Sketches - Be Cool...Follow the Rules

It's Sunday, again. Time for Sunday Sketches,
with Sophia and The Blue Chair Diary.
Time really flies, doesn't it?
I started this sketch the other night, after a visit to my daughter's elementary school.
Remember, it's not polite to talk out of turn.  
Sometimes we forget that little rule, even as adults...
This is just a simple reminder....Raise your hand, and please don't talk out of turn!
For more Sunday Sketches, pop on over here, hope to see you there.

We've started to color this illustration.
Mine is above,
and Summer's is below
if your kids would like to color this in,
simply click on the original and print,
and have fun!

Adorable sketch. How fun that your daughter gets to color your artwork. I love seeing the kids get involved and it is wonderful to see parents have quality time with the kids. I just might print this out for my granddaughter to color next time she is here as coloring is her favorite thing. Thank you for your generosity.

I love that your children inspire you so well. This is great fun and awesome that you and Summer are coloring together. You might have yourself a little coloring book or picture book theme going on here: Manners In School...I know down south they are practically non-existent in the public system.

So cute, and so true! It's nice to know that there are conscientious people who model respect for each other. I hope by sharing this illo, your message touches a few little ones...It seems there are fewer adults in charge as time goes by. Let's hope the younger ones reverse the trend! :o)

Oops! My "sermonette" has concluded...Hope you're having a great Sunday! Hee hee! :o)

We will definitely colour this! Love your simple lesson made so fun! What a great family project you have made your daughter's!

Thank you for your comment (my daughter had since added her sketch this morning, its Thanks Giving here! A fire pit, how great is that!

Heather here are a couple of links to retellings of the Russian tale of the Giant Turnip. In our version, a chapter in Isabel Wyatt's, Seven-Year-Old-Wonder Book, the characters are slightly different; a child, a lion, a bear, a fox, a rabbit and a mouse to match the child and his stuffed animals in Wyatt's wonderful tale. I truly must post about this book and its magic soon - right after Halloween - there is a magical way to read this book to children that I simply must throw out there! I will share this soon - I promise!

Another cute sketch - yours always make me smile, they are just adorable. My son prefers to just splash paint about. Well, truth be told, he prefers to throw himself about - preferably in lots of mud!

Awww she's so cute! And what good advise...even for adults! ;)

Julia Christie said...

How fun that you and your daughter both get to bring your own sense of color to this great drawing! I Love the message here too, and you are right, sometimes even adults forget this important rule.

Great job!
