A lot has happened, of course, with all of us since the beginning of January, and I do hope to play catch-up someday soon (as I often am with everything it seems!) but for now, I'm celebrating (and hoping!) that all of the stress and craziness of the last four months is behind us.
I spent a wonderfully creative and peaceful morning with my Jude, now that Henry is in preschool and Felix was taking a morning nap. Here's to celebrating the simple things!

A robin's nest outside our neighbor's window.
We can see it from the kitchen table and love watching those robins every morning.
Jude and I played with blocks for quite some time on the front porch....well, I folded laundry too, when he would let me :)
We made a few mixed-media compositions.
Then we made a puppet!
After we picked up Henry and had lunch, all four of us (including Felix!) sat around our art table and made some springtime pictures which included a lot of feathers. Then we read One Morning in Maine before tucking in for our naps!
It's been a long while since I've had such a nice day. Here's to many more moments of peace and creativity to come!
