Scenes from our Day


"I am beginning to learn that it is the sweet and simple things of life which are the real ones after all."-Laura Ingalls Wilder
We took a impromptu picnic to the river today. The breeze blew, our table was in the shade and we stayed for hours.
We find her in this position so often....sketchbook in hand, watching the boats on the river, writing down her thoughts and sketching what she sees. She was calling this spot her thinking rock today.
i love this face!! And these feet together. Everyone was just enjoying time out together.

A wee potty break...pardon the pun!!!
I am always amazed at how well they get along when we are outdoors away from the house. And they are entertained with little more than a stick, some rocks and a little bit of sand.
Now this....this is a picture of the husband behaving badly....lighting some whittled wood with the kids nature magnifying lens. Of course the kids were none the wiser because i think it better not to teach them this little trick.

you sometimes have to teach them how to make fire, before you can teach them the valuable skill of fighting it...a few weeks ago, the kids at the top of their swing set spotted a fire on the property behind us, a literal forest fire...i had to run next door to put the neighbors back lawn out and keep his fence from burning down ;) just another boring day of home schooling, you know :)

Love these pictures. Avery is so cute with that journal. I can't wait to see how that develops over the years.
