A New School Year

It's that time of year again. The sun still shines quite bright in our nook of the world, with temperatures still hovering around 100 degrees. We are thankful for trees and the breeze.
We feel so blessed with the opportunity to learn and grow and be part of an awesome community.
Happy Back to School Everyone!
Are you wondering about school lunches? Here's a post from my other blog from last year:

Late Rainbows and Family Drawing Time

This past week a couple different Waldorf bloggers celebrated Rainbow Week (Waldorfmama, Frontier Dreams). Thanks for sharing all things rainbow! I'm a little late, but I figured it's never too late to see a rainbow.

Rainbow "Thank You" Cards from my daughter's watercolor painting time. We are sending some out to thank others for coming to her birthday party.

A special Fabulous Fruit picture my daughter drew that is above her kitchen.

We got another orange tabby kitty on Friday. His name is Sunny and joins Bindi, our 2 year old orange tabby. Even though she's still being like an evil stepmother to him, we hope that she can overcome her grumpiness, be more motherly, and realize they share the love of wool.

I had bought a 3 set of Moleskin notebooks for our family drawing time. The fantastically creative mom, Amanda Soule, suggests this in her book "The Creative Family". Even though my husband was not so enthusiastic and said "He can't draw," he gave it a try. Our inspiration was Sunny. Our daughter was so thrilled at us all drawing together. It's a great way to relax and bring out your inner child, who is always a wonderful artist!

Our first entry: Sunny
Dad's pic has the cat with caption "Brains"..oh well, zombie cat returns.

Have a great week!
