Summer will be arriving tomorrow.
The weather here has been delightful. (Minus the tornado warnings- shudder)
Windows open, jackets at night, warm brownies after dinner.
Took a peek at the weather and the heat is heading our way.
Unless someone wants to whisk me away to the beach.;)
The girls and I have been visiting the local gardens- sketching, exploring, chatting, taking pictures.
It's amazing how relaxing it is being among all this beauty.
This makes me almost think orange is my favorite color...
Until I see this, and the pink and yellow/green combination blows me away!
There's a sign here that says, "Please, run in the grass."
This reminds me of Jeremy Fisher (Beatrix Potter book).
While sitting on a lily pad, he dipped his toe in the water and a fish bit him!
("Jaws" music plays in the background)
You'll never look at a lily pad the same way again.
Yes, they exist! Looks like God took a bit longer coloring her.:)
The rooster. So noisy, but look at his colors.
See the clouds?
Yeah, they were crazy.
That evening we had a meeting of the Under the Stairs Club.
We even inducted a new member!
More about that later.
Look at the cute little Bumble Bee.
Chubby works for them.;)
Ah, the rush of water...
School is out!
(Except for some children who have a mean homeschooling Mom.)
She makes them spend time outside sketching and socializing!
(Perhaps she's not too bad.)
Did you know that same Mom has a sketchbook?
She was so proud of herself for drawing a picture, until she realized she'd started at the back and her picture was upside down?
Going downhill quickly, dear friends.
Please send chocolate.
4 leaf clovers?
Favorite picture of the day.
Standing in front of the building she drew.
Secret places all over this place.
You never know what you'll discover!
They didn't know I took these pictures.
I can be a spy.;)
Tornado warnings late in the evening.
The lightning was insane!
Under the stairs we went. 4 girls- check. Pillows- check. Ruby- check. Snookie- check. Flashlights- check. Snacks- check. Phone- check. Prayers- double check.
And this is how our evening ended. The Little Mermaid and then off to my bed, reading.
Tornado warning recovery is better spent in Mom and Dad's bed.
I slept on the couch.
And I was happy to be safe- in my nest.
