It feels like eons since I've written a post.
There are so many reasons why I've been absent.
Some of the more complicated ones are discussed here.
Others are less complicated.
And a whole lot more fun.
We've been painting things turquoise.
The weather has been so beautiful lately that we spend as much time as we can outside.
We do a lot of our school work outside on a blanket under the avocado tree.
Spending so much time in the backyard has me itching to do all sorts of projects out there.
One of the things we've tackled is the playhouse.
Take a look at this floor.
It was crying for a makeover.
So we gave it one.
James did the cutting in.
He has a steadier hand than I do.
And he loves being better at things than I am.
It's any kid's dream, right?
William and Lilly did the rest of the floor.
There are a few places with extra paint.
But I'd rather they get to paint their own playhouse and make a few mistakes, than I do it all myself and make a few less mistakes.
Because really, only James would have done it perfectly anyway.
We've done a bit more on the playhouse.
Maybe I'll get around to doing a little tour of it soon.
After painting the playhouse floor, I got out the turquoise paint again.
And I gave our picnic table it's annual, summer coat.
It looks so good in turquoise.
Practically everything does.
There have been lots of other projects, big (sorting and organizing hundreds of books) and small (spray painting light switch plates).
I hope to share them with you.
Sooner or later.
If you've stuck around despite my sporadic posting, I appreciate it.
I do like being here when I get the chance.
