Woodland Meandering

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.

Rowan...

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...

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...

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.

  2. Yay! Immglad the watercolours are getting some use, it was a shame that we never got the chance when you guys were here, but main thing is that it looks like fun was had. :) I love the first photo with Jennas mismatching knee high striped socks. :)

    1. Normal Jenna! The tins were ever so handy and having one each was the treat of all treats to these three pickles! I'm sure they'll get lots more use.

    2. Yeah, I spent a while um-ing and ah-ing about getting three tins (hence the different colours of tins, but interestingly identical inside... says something that the black tins was significantly more expensive!!), but I decided in the end it would lead to fewer arguements, and less "ahhhh, you mixed the colours!" when exicted little ones forgot to clean brushes. Happy weekending. x
