I engineered a little magic for the girls earlier in the week. I thought they looked like they needed a breath of fresh air and a bit of something completely different.
The top picture is a duck on the lake - the yellow blob is the sun, the green blob is a tree. I love her paintings at the moment. They are so very Rowan!
Morgan paints one picture in the time it takes the others to do two. She always wants the boldest truest colours, and gets very upset by any unintended mark she makes.
Jenna painted the sunset over the dunes in Nothumberland, and a little cottage in a meadow.
Green spiders, unripe chestnuts, alder cones, and tiny baby hoppity froglets were amongst the subjects of life's very own nature class this week.
As usual the bigger ones left an offering for any fairies that might be around here. And the little toddler got tired feet.
There really are times when everything is just right. I have to get over my terror of taking all four out on my own so that we can just up and get outside on long days. It's what we all need.
