Today started off very slow, windy, and rainy. We had to be inside all morning, which I was not thrilled about because we are on a two week homeschooling break while I learn the ropes of our new curriculum. So I didn't even have scheduled school stuff to keep the kids busy. And they started getting full of energy fast. So I gathered up all sorts of art supplies and loaded up the table. This sort of project never thrills my busy boy, and he was tired of painting on paper nearly as soon as we started. For some strange reason, I reached into Grammy's fire starters pile and pulled out a cardboard egg carton. "Here, Logan, try painting this." He was HOOKED! The kids spend ALL morning water coloring egg cartons, TP rolls, and sticks of kindling.
I showed them how to reveal secret messages with watercolors.
Logan thought that was pretty cool.
This is the kind of mess I love.
Now, Kian naps, Felicity and Logan are finally outside in the sunshine and wind, and I'm off to soak up some "mama sanity" time (as a wonderful blog friend says).
