Things are usually a little crazy around here.
Because, honestly, homeschooling seven kids is a pushing-this-mama-to-the-limit reality on most days.
And since Clementine came home, the crazy has just gotten stronger.
(In an adorable way, of course.)
It has limited our outings significantly.
And limited the time I have to spend one-on-one with my girls.
So they’ve just had to get creative and use what we have around here for entertainment.
Because when the weather is cold, the days can get long.
But they have been so full of grace. So resourceful. And so full of love for their tiny sister.
They have found ways to have fun at home, use their brains and God-given gifts, and entertain themselves right here under this roof.
With very little help from mama.
On this afternoon Poppy donned her tutu and “fixed” her hair like a princess. Then settled in to color a picture for her G.G. with a side of Froot Loops.
You know, a little sugar boosts creativity.
And as Poppy told me about the picture she had drawn and asked where she should write, “To G.G., Love, Poppy”, I was struck by her beauty, in her tutu. Eating her Froot Loops.
So a little photo-shoot happened.
Noah joined the party and was pretty pleased to get a few Froot Loops for his cooperation.
Totally spur of the moment. All I did was tuck the hair behind her ears.
Truly, the girl on the outside is as lovely as the girl on the inside.
