I haven't posted a WIP in forever…… so here is what I am working on…..
3 out of 4 kids have one of these in my house and I put a few in the shop too! It's a Little Explorer Bag for our nature walks. The over the shoulder style ensures it stays on and they can put their little treasures into it as they run around. Mr Three has informed me he does not want the gnome one. He wants one to match his blanket. So I guess I'll be doing a little bus one next. Who knew a three year old could be so particular?
And a personal WIP is a little promise I made to myself last week. The older three kids have started going to a homeschool art class on Wednesdays from 2-4. It's this great "free" art time. They can work on whatever they want….. very, very fun for all of them. But Mr. Three is not yet old enough. So I *promised* myself that I would use this as just mama & Mr. Three time. Even though I could clean, or sew, or start dinner, or something……. I will seize this rare little snippet of time to be just with him. To do just what he wants.
Which usually means chasing him around outside while he goes "hunting" for things.
I just follow his lead……
and revel in the quiet beauty of this little boy.
Yes, he really is quiet when it is just him. Lost in his own imagination.
It's good stuff.
And far too fleeting…. yes…. far to fleeting.
