Today we thought it would be fun if we took our water color paints outside and painted some of the plum blossoms that are blooming so that we could add them to our nature journals :)
I just love watching the kids paint with water colors. The way that the paint seems to creep across the page as the fibers soak up the color and the wild ways that it creates masterpieces :)
I had drawn a robot and spaceship for M to paint over and L decided that she was going to paint chickens with very large hair *grin*.
We ended up with one completed painting of the blossoms and then spent the rest of the time playing in the sun, eating blueberry scones made with freshly milled grain that I ground and eventually tucking blankets over the youngest two as they crashed in the afternoon for an unexpected nap time :)
