Today, though after work was done, I sent them out to find something they wanted to draw. The girls both chose this lovely marigold in the garden. They took their clipboards and set out to drawing. The sun was quite bright as you can tell from Diella's shield, but the day has been just beautiful to not be outside.
Josiah also wanted to be out there but he didn't want to draw. So, he got his little shovel and worked in the garden. Not sure that his "work" is always helpful, but he sure loves digging in the dirt.
We do enjoy the outdoors and all that it has to teach us and feed us. :) Well, I am off to give a massage while Jonathon plays ball with the children. Trying to enjoy and take advantage of this weather while we can. Soon we will be building fires and drinking hot cocoa. I do love that too, but prefer the cool breezes and warm sun.
