The girls have been getting creative. After our beach adventures on Saturday, they were delighted to find the picnic rug on Sunday morning. So they put it (and a huge quantity of sand) our in the middle of the kitchen floor, whereupon they had an impromptu picnic for all the teddies, cats, dolls and ponies.
But such a special event surely needs special decorations? Their cups were soon festively decorated in an appropriate fashion.
I think that DH is finally starting to ‘get’ the crafting thing. The girls are busy decorating, colouring, stamping and making so many times a day I think it largely washed over him. But on Saturday he was in charge while I was at work, and I came home to find he and Miss 4 had made a beautiful flower.
She apparently brought in a buttercup and wanted to trace around it. I think this construction paper, magazine and pipe-cleaner creation exceeded her expectations. And I’m delighted to see all the small details that show what a fun time they must have had making it.
I’ve been doing more gardening and cooking rather than crafty creating – although my knitting needles are always busy. We have been eating home grown veges every night for a couple of weeks now, and should continue to do so through the summer. The biggest challenge has been to find suitable dishes to cook with the available ingredients! Luckily the children seem happy to try almost anything when they have helped to water or pick it 🙂
