What We've Been Up To Lately
In having older and younger children, it is fun and interesting to see the influence the older ones have on the younger. Lindsay and Emily are often found with their cameras taking photos and now the youngest one has gotten in on the act.
These photos were taken by Kyle last week. It is interesting to note the things that he thought to photograph and also to see the house from his perspective!
Notice that the back of the chair is above his eye level. I don't know that I have ever seen the hall way from this angle before!
Here is his foot. He gets this technique from Emily - she is an expert at taking photos of her own feet - on purpose!
This is a shot of Kyle's bedroom floor. He painted that last week, too, and must have been taken with how it looked with blocks, books, and other things on the floor! You never know when inspiration will strike!
We went to a huge craft store a few weeks ago and the girls couldn't resist having fun with some of the items in the store.
The main attraction was the ultimate frisbee...I think they must be discussing strategy but Rachel looks like she is pestering Mikey again...
We made a trip to Longwood. Rachel and Sarah did a class there with kids from our co-op.
They have been highlighting pollinators all year - these are bees made from mums! They look awesome in the conservatory!
This is a 'Thousand Flower Chrysanthemum' however it only has 750 flowers on it. It is one plant with that many flowers on it, not multiple plants to achieve that look.
This was my view from the chair I sat on to read. Remember how I told you I had a whole hour to myself?
This was also my view, just looking the other direction. Can you understand why we love Longwood so much?
Last but not least, I leave you with the girls who came for a birthday party of horseback riding. Lindsay did her first party today and it went so well - it was chilly and so we made a fire in the fire pit and I brought out hot chocolate and marshmallows to be toasted over the fire! Happy Birthday Liesel! Hope you had a ton of fun!
