A Few Moments from Today...

While the rain came down this afternoon...

Saten decided to take a nap in Diana's paint case!

And Lia chose to escape the heat by dancing and singing in the rain!


Sometimes we take pics & forget to upload, and sometimes we forget to take pics & wish we had! Yesterday was a case of forgetting to upload, but look at what we did! ^_^

First, Jacqueline & I went to a plantswap, got some plants, and planted them! They're a little pathetic looking right now, but I can't wait to see how they'll grow! (They're to the left of the shovel...)

And when I uploaded those pics, I found these pics too! This looks like Esme's artwork (charcoal, literally, on the back deck, LOL!) and her toes...

More charcoal drawings, this time on the driftwood Adirondack chair...

And an anime insprired scene... (The girls *love* the new washable markers that Lia brought home from her godmother's, painting their faces, dolls' hair...)

Busy Day

And so distracting that I fixed up one of the few pics we took and plumb forgot to post it! LOL! So without further ado...

Happy Fairy Day!

We didn't know it was Fairy Day in time to plan any special activities...

But we still had fun planting a sunflower garden!

And playing Care Bears!

Lia as Love-a-lot!

Josie as Champ!

Es as Good Luck!

It was beautiful.

Diana declared it the summer of the mermaid. All of the kids are eagerly doing mermaid art. This is a drawing by Esme.
