"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.
My name is Leslie. I live in Virginia. I am a wife to Chris, a super husband/great daddy/army officer/PhD candidate. I am a mother to three very exciting kids, Avery and Mitchell, ages 13 and 10 and "baby" Delilah who is 5. I am a little crafty. I love fabric, quilting and I love my friends and family. I hope here I can keep up with all of you that are so very far away.
