    Maia's Story Day  We've had enough art for a while. How about the written word? Maia has started writing stories (although she rarely finishes them).     Amber the Cat for Brian Uri by Maia Uri   It all started when I was six. Amber was snoozing on the couch. I looked at her again. She was stretching her paw.     What woke her up? Suddenly dad sat next to me. I bet it was dad walking toward me. It was time for bed. (I was learning about time in school).   That night, I dreamt of 100 cats in our house and I couldn't find Amber.       The Mystery of the Missing Wand by Maia Uri   Once upon a time some fairies lost a very important wand. One of ...

    Maia's Art Day    This is the cutest owl that anyone has ever drawn, anywhere.        Artifacts from sea turtle week.      There are 7 kinds of sea turtles. Sea turtles can stay underwater for seven hours.      Lily the Silly Cat by Maia Uri      Once upon a time there was a silly cat named Lily.  "You are silly"  Your cat friend  "Lily tricked me"      Lily tricked the other cats. So the other cats tricked her.  I'm unusually invested in how this (still unfinished) story will turn out.       My favorite snack is Goldfish because they are salty.

    Maia's Art Day    Scale maps of Cat Town, Bunny Town, and Dog Town, all along Route 7 in Loudoun County. Maia lives in Bunny Town on Hop Court. The guy who put Mew Ct next to Mew Rd in Cat Town probably designed North Arlington too.      "Let's play ninjas. Whoever gets spotted is out. Everyone is a ninja."      Maia created a pet store one night when she was supposed to be going to bed. Each cat had a storybook describing its temperament and what other cats it enjoyed being around. Rebecca drew the cat sketches as a kid.      Over Christmas, Maia watched the Super Mario Brothers movie, played Untitled Goose Game, created a butterfly and Amber using her 3D doodler, and we...

    Maia's Art Day    "My monster is spooky because he loves to scare people."      Maia's first trezur hunt: "Where leaves fall, a box hides next to the tree."      A surprisingly accurate representation of our state.      "I think spiders are creepy. Especially big ones."      "Hey, come back here!"      We do!      Food, yum!

    Maia's Art Day    Let's all feel happy today.      This is a unicorn princess named Sunbeam, from a series of chapter books that Maia is engulfing.      And this one is Prism, from the same series, of course.      Many nights after Maia has "gone to bed", she'll pop out of her room and leave a sign for us, informing us of upcoming events. Rainbow Dash Day was a Halloween costume creation event sponsored by My Little Pony.      Maia started by copying these song lyrics out of her "Purrmaids" book. She then invented a melody for it. Aftewards, she added even more original songs to the songbook, such as the future hit, "Where'd the Magic Bunny Go?" ...

    Maia's Art Day   More notable artwork from April 2023.      They draw a lot of self portraits in Art class these days.      Instruction manual for riding a bike.      She has an umbrella to keep her dry.      Two bunnies waving at each other from across the river. I'm most impressed by the advanced use of perspective in this art. The far bunny is smaller! The near bunny is facing away! Artistry!

    Maia's Art Day   Notable artwork from March 2022    Hang on to your hats. I'm going to post more of Maia's artwork because I simultaneously want to remember it forever but don't want it all cluttering up the living room shelves!     These cats are CRAZY.      Half of us are surprised by the cat.      Though not perfect, Maia's phonetic spelling of words is improving.      This is the lyrics sheet for a song Maia wrote about love.      I'm not in this picture because I'm "in the kitchen making dinner". Can you spot Ian's band-aid?      A butterfly, of course.      Rebe...

    Maia's Art Day   Notable artwork from February 2022    Maia's artwork is increasing in output and starting to remind me of  my own early art .     The cat is sad that the bunny ate all of her carrots.      Technically the truth.      A Valentine's caterpillar.      Looks like Maia will be adopting the lesser known MM/YY/DD format, using snowflakes as a divider.      Maia is really into Number Blocks right now.      These sea things were drawn using a "How to Draw" book I got her.      Highly accurate mapwork.

    Maia's Art Day   Notable artwork from November 2022 - February      Another collection of scary monsters.      Various buildings in Cattown. Some have flowers growing out of the roofs.      A vertical map of a bunny's burrow. The mommy bunny is asleep in the bedroom but the baby bunny's butt is on the mommy bunny's face.      Maia's kindergarten teacher is currently trying to nudge Maia towards making less flamboyant As.      The last smudgy bunny is Olaf Bunny.      Groundhog's Day!
