--1--In an attempt to be both crafty and eco-friendly, we tried to make crayons from the old broken pieces which just sit there and never get chosen. We sat in the floor, peeling paper and sorting according to hue, for quite some time. The little ones abandoned the project after a while, leaving Sophie and I to finish the job. While the colors looked beautiful, we discovered that the foil had holes in it. We had fun, but the project was a decided failure.
Sophie and our priest right after her Confirmation. The picture of her actually being confirmed was dark, blurry, and just downright disappointing. This one captures the mood much better.
--3--My raised garden beds! These plants look so tiny and delicate, and yet they will soon fill those beds. I enjoy going out there each morning to tend to my little vegetable patch.
--4--This loaf of Artisan Bread is one of my most beautiful so far. I wish you could hear it crackle as it cools. I thank God for allowing me to stop and enjoy the little moments of daily life that can easily be missed.
--5--It was too beautiful to stay inside this week, so we took blankets and books outside to soak up some sunshine and fresh air.
An apple for the "teacher"!
Happy Friday to you! Go to Jen's for more.
