Bye Bye Summer
School begins tomorrow and amongst the frenzy of labelling school clothes, finding book bags and guilt over uncompleted homework, I am remembering our summer.
I won't pretend that painting in the garden is an everyday occurence, but on this day the creation of a green car (with blue side panel) took priority. A long time was spent mixing more paint, adding glitter, carving doors and handles.....and then the long wait for it to eventually dry. Needless to say once complete it was played in for a minute, promptly split and then we spent weeks trying to smuggle it out of the bedroom and into the recycling bin. But then it is *all* in the creating.
Please note my attempt to disguise the kids paint in a vintage bread bin.
