War Paint

I promised this post a while ago, but just uploaded the pictures today.

I often wrestle with wanting to let my littles do something really fun and making the time to do it. So one day, a few weeks ago, we set out for finger painting. The kids needed a bath, it was warm out and we had all of our school work done with plenty of time before lunch. I put the boys in their swim suits. O wore a white onesie with paint on it from who knows when

and CJ had just nursed.

The three big littles started painting on paper on the sidewalk.

Then C got a little paint on his hand and asked if he could paint himself, I obliged. That's why they were wearing their swim suits anyway!

Then C asked if he could paint B. We both agreed.

Then the boys proceeded to chase each other around the yard with paint brushes and request specific colors for their war paint. They fought a good battle until I came after them with the hose. :)
I really should seek to put more fun in our days!

That is so fun!!!!!!! YOu're such a fun mom!!! Love O's pig tails!!!

I was thinking about you this morning and wondering how you were doing! I was wondering if you've adjusted to having to cook again! I'm onto my frozen meals now and am so glad I stock-piled! I am going to try to make some bread today. And maybe granola later this week! I do love your granola recipe! :)
