We have a lot of trips planned this summer, both short and long. The days in between – while i look forward to them – for Eily, they are taken some getting used to. A bit of boredom can do you good….in the long run. Still, i’m trying not to just fill up these days with housework and self-directed play. But to give them something to look forward to in these wide open afternoons.
So we painted….ponds and muskrats and waterfalls and also ourselves. It’s something we haven’t done in ages and not yet with Gabe. I took the easel from the attic and put it in the yard. With the pool nearby to dunk Gabe in at the end.
We stopped for snacks and to steal the first ripe raspberries from the garden. And sugar snaps. And broccoli.
