We spent some time together being artistic. We did some more painting on Wednesday and yesterday we began whittling some gnomes out of fallen branches. It was hard work sawing and carving the wood to get them to be gnome -shaped. Soon we will paint their gnome hats.
We spent some more time at the beach and outside, trying to catch a bit of sunshine and fresh air amidst the many days of rain we are continuing to have. It makes everybody more happy.
Serafina of course loves the puddles! She always goes straight for them, especially the most muddy ones.
And has to sit in them.
This morning Serafina was my kitchen helper. We made banana pancakes.
Really we had quite a lazy week. They all kind of have the tendency to fly by on me. I feel like I accomplished barely anything that I wanted to (as usual), but there were smiles and stories and good fun spent outside. Everyone is well-fed and well-rested and happy and we all had a bath today (which I count as something accomplished), even if my house looks like a bomb went off in it.
I will get to that sometime, but even when I do, it will look the same by the end of next week. And yes, if you look closely, that is brown sharpie all over our loveseat. That’s toddlers for you!
Still, life is beautiful!
