Rainbows and Tree Houses, Oh Yes…

Today has been a day of working with colour and rainbows, learning about the colour spectrum and how colour emerges. It has been an exciting day indeed!

We are greeted by many rainbows all over our classroom walls each morning as the sun shines through a crystal hanging in the window…

My Shalom is almost finished, it has been such an enjoyable project that has taken much longer than I anticipated. It has been a journey and I think that is the important part for me… so much has happened since I started knitting this cardigan and when I wear it, I know I will reflect on all those moments and experiences during its creation process…

Kye has been loving this tea set, we have all been served copious cups of tea to drink, so sweet:)

Some of Erin’s colour mixing experiments… It is so magical to see the different colours suspended and then slowly mixing within the water…

Jen is busy learning about the art of the short story and this book has been a wonderful resource.

A chicken or two do tend to sneak in at the window sometimes for a wee visit…

Caiden has been working on his tree house in the Loquat tree, he has built it all by himself and is tremendously proud of his work, as am I.

How has your Thursday been so far?

Take care
Linda xo

    Stunning post my friend. Your life looks glorious!!! I am so battling with the school pressures that the kids have, trying to get them to study for tests etc is a nightmare! Hope you have a lovely weekend 🙂

    Love the look on the cat’s face and the colors mixing in the water.

    The thought of the chickens popping in and out made me laugh! Ours are not so friendly, possibly because they were purchased as pullets and also perhaps my little boys love to chase them about!

    Beautiful pictures – rainbows are almost everywhere I look lately! Loving the chook on the book and your cardigan looks so soft – hope spring has some chill in the air so you can wear it.

    I LOVE Loquats!
    I also LOVE chickens and many folk seem to be teasing me with their posts at the moment…
    We’re in house hunting mode. Perhaps it’s a sign of things to come…

    unrelated PS – your knitted snowdrop is beautiful!

    Blessings and thanks, Betsy

    Oh yes please put me in. I have several crystals hanging…I just love being covered in rainbows. I love the schooling set up with the cat and chicken. Your son has done an amazing job…he looks like he is surrounded by fairies. You have inspired me to start a shalom after I finish Alex’s and Trinity’s sweater.
