That being said, we did have a day or two that the high was around 50 and the low was below freezing. Well, on that particular weekend, we had two males in our home who decided they wanted to do something different with their hair. Steve was just tired of his hair and couldn't seem to find the time to go and get it cut. So he headed in the bathroom and shaved it off. Then Brandon thought that was such a cool haircut, he begged for the same. So, as I was shaving Steve's neck and Brandon was asking please, please, please, for the hundredth time to get his hair shaved, I reached over and shaved a nice big spot off of his head, and then Steve did some art work with it before he cut it all off.
Steven is at an interesting stage in life. He really wants to find a hobby that he loves and he is having a hard time. He does love baseball when it is the season, but for the rest of the year, he has no interest in sports whatsoever. For a while he was determined to be an actor. He asked me constantly how he can become an actor and be on a show on Nickelodeon. I of course was not interested in this crazy dream and I told him that he needs to think of something else to be. I mean the boy is very uncomfortable being silly or doing anything in front of anybody except his own family. He finally stopped talking about that dream and has now decided that he wants to be an artist. This is a hobby I can support. I think it would be great for him to learn how to draw and be creative. This is his art studio he has made on his desk. Steve bought the drawing you see on the easel from Steven for $3, so he even has a little cash flow from his hobby already. Now to look into some art classes for him.
Speaking of Steven and his talents, he participated in a Technology Fair that our school district had this weekend. He used a program called google sketch up and he created this castle with it. He didn't take a place in the competition, but I am happy he did participate. He learned a lot about the program over the past month while he created and then deleted his pictures as he tried to decide what he wanted to have as his final project. He also got excited to create something even better for next year, as he saw all the projects that were in the competition.
One other cool thing to report this week...Steve has been hard at work in the garage on another wood project. Nathan got a bunny for Christmas from Santa Claus, but the cage he came in was just too small for him. So Steve headed to Lowes and got what he needed to make a castle for the little bunny. Steve got a table saw for his birthday last year and he has really enjoyed it. Here is the bunny cage that will now decorate our back porch. Steve did a great job. He is such a good wood worker.
