Home school club this week was devoted to painting flowers. Some of the girls have been interested in flowers and herbs and so I thought the best introduction to a couple weeks of learning about flowers would be to paint them. I brought some flowers from my Mothers Day bouquets and Ellie and I collected some wildflowers that were in the park to create some lovely still life models. The girls were busy riding bikes and playing on the playground but each of them, stopped in to sketch or paint some flowers. Our oldest girl even came back around to work on her piece. It’s a joy for me to get to watch these girls paint, even if its just for small increments of time in between their play. Looking forward to learning more about our local flora in the weeks ahead.
