It's after our end of the year Cultural School Picnic and a few of the girls
I love "hanging out after" times.
The girls above - Jenna, Xenia, Emily, Molly - did a round of painting. Molly painted a cat she saw on a coffee cup, and Em did her initials with cutesy flowers surrounding them. THEN they all walked in at T's house - where we were - and asked all giggly-like,
"May we play in the water?"
"May we get all wet with our clothes on?"
Off they went and the above pics are testimony to the fun that was had.
Later, it was apple slices and Barbie playing.
Fake sleeping in the bed all together.
It was great for all the girls to run, laugh, get wet...and PLAY in T's backyard.
I love plain, simple playing.
Quotes about childhood that speak to my soul:
Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.
I want to giggle myself to sleep each night and jump on the fluffy, comforting pillows of faith.
A man is getting old when he walks around a puddle instead of through it.
Some things can only be understood when you're in a tree house. With a pile of warm chocolate chip cookies. And a book.
The reluctance to put away childish things may be a requirement of genius. ~Rebecca Pepper Sinkler
