Astronauts and Original Art

We've been talking about astronauts a lot the last couple of days.  Hopefully you've already seen the video of Chris Hadfield doing "Space Oddity" (if you haven't, you should definitely check it out on YouTube!) - we watched it as a family, and everyone loved it.  Then we had to watch a shuttle launch, which had everyone clapping and cheering and jumping around.

Griffin decided he needed to draw an astronaut.  With a spaceship.  This is one of my favourite pictures, ever.  Griffin recently opened an Art Store in our dining room, and he's been selling us his original works of art for very reasonable prices (sometimes when you pay a boat penny, you get a moose penny in change).  Some of my other favourites include "Elephant", "Three Bunnies", and "Rhinoceros".   We've got the laundry drying rack set up with clothes pegs so he can hang his pieces.  Just a warning, if you happen to be in the market for some original art, though - he's a little bit choosy about who can buy what, when.
