Featured Art Work

Julia picked an array of wild flowers and

Julia then informed me that hers were in a pile because she was making a flower nest for the bird she was going to draw. She then asked me to turn on the basement light so that she could go downstairs and make her bird.
I found her later asleep on the family room floor, but when I went into the kitchen
I found her bird sitting in its nest.
I thought it was so cute that I had to take its picture:

Enjoying Spring

We have been really enjoying spring lately. The warmth of the sun is a welcome
change from the gray of winter.
As I sat outside watching the kids play, I was amused by the different ways they chose

the girls chose to sit together and draw...

the boys are alternately riding their bikes
and hacking at sticks that fell from the tree across the street...

Ah, spring...
