serious art.

Caitlin enjoys creating things. She is always drawing, loves stickers, playdough, paint with water and more. She’s quite a budding little artist and this proud Aunty loves that! When we stopped to visit (on the way to Yakima a few weeks ago) she had lovely designs all over the front sidewalk; to greet us.

The artist’s choice of materials this fine evening?

warm concrete slab. chubby sidewalk chalk. 8 year old willing male subject.

What was so interesting and made me get out the camera was how intensely focused the children were about this. Normally they are whooping, running and giggling but this time? for both of them? it was all business…


She works in silence, occasionally asking Caleb to spread his fingers farther; to hold his head still. He complies dutifully and grins at me as I take photos. He loves his cousin so much…

He even let her circle one half of his body in (gasp)

the color pink.

Christian homeschooling mom to three boys, married to my best friend, John, for over 20 years. I love gardening without gloves, learning history with my kids, cooking with lots of butter, serving others, great books, rich coffee, studying the Bible, camping outdoors, scrapbooking, vintage home decor, the smell of rain and cut grass, authentic people, poetry, laughing until your sides hurt, and babies. oh and black licorice is pretty awesome.
