Baking day.
This girl of mine.  Be still my heart.  She is just so amazing.  With one sibling having a sometimes all-consuming chronic illness, a spirited toddler under foot and two louder and larger than life teenage brothers, I sometimes fear that she is getting lost in the shuffle.  A couple of weeks ago I was feeling like she could use a little extra attention.  I took a break from other projects to secretly made her this hat and I’m so glad she likes it (I was worried she might not!). #baablehat
I’ve come to the conclusion that if my children are really going to grow in their nature journaling then they need an example to follow, especially since I’ve noticed a tendency to get stuck in certain ways of doing their pages.  It’s actually something that I love doing with them, but it somehow always seems easier or more appropriate to try to get something done during the time when they are quietly working.  I’m trying to shift that this year and spend more time working with them.  The plan is for me to complete at least one nature journal page a week.  We’ll see how it goes!  #naturejournal #naturejournaling #charlottemason #charlottemasoneducation #exploringnaturewithchildren
"Seraphina, why on earth is your pancake on your cup?" "So I can lick the syrup of my plate!" Duh, mom.

Exhausted isn't a strong enough word.
I do so love watching this boy dance.
I finally managed to publish a blog post, though a none-too-impressive one.  I've really been missing blogging lately. But I've also yet to find a way to fit it into our current life.
First time on a carousel.  I asked her what she thought of it and she exclaimed, “It’s wonderful!” in an awestruck tone with her eyes all alight.  Sweet darling love. #fabrikbrandrep17

Apple picking.
All aglow at the apple orchard.  #fabrikbrandrep17
