Oh, what do you do in the summertime when everything is green?
This year we are officially changing that green word to brown. It is so hot and dry – we are in a severe drought and you can see it everywhere you look.
Here are some of the things that we are doing to beat the heat (ok, deal with it, lol):
Explore the dry creek beds that are usually full during our nature walks (we drew some awesome crawdads in our nature journals)
Take pictures for our nature journals – we draw these inside where it is not so hot or save them for the winter months when it is nasty outside. We have lots of these types of pictures. The nature journals are coming right along. Love it!
He was sitting in a patch of long grass and HorseyBug spotted him – he decided to run, which ensured that everyone saw him =O – we will be drawing him too!
Experimenting with food recipes
Creating and designing whole new worlds of paper dolls
Finding frogs on our windows when we went on the deck to watch the fireworks Friday night (and yes, we are drawing him too),
and last, but certainly not least:
Go to the beach????
Actually, it rained for the first time in weeks and the littles are dancing in the rain!! Wheee!!!
Have a great week everyone!
