these children want to play


and so, to the library.

on to the playground during a brief break in the rain.

where we have almost mastered the monkey bars.

home to sort through our library treasure, among the winners:

Folktales of the Amur: Stories From the Russian Far East

Tatsinda by Elizabeth Enright

The Ice Cream Store: Poems by Dennis Lee

and this one, Marbles: 101 Ways to Play by Joanna Cole…which led to marbles, of course.

Ceiling clouds, which were inspired by Angry Chicken

and this granola…I am hardly ever completely faithful to this recipe and often just toss what I’ve got on hand in…it is always delicious and your home will smell amazing!

here’s hoping for sun…soon!

  1. does so much rain mean mud?
    i love the rainbow clouds and was thinking of doing that with own…maybe when a true rain-day hits. also, the library wins, every time.
    Dennis Lee is one of my most nostalgic Canadian kids’ poets… Jelly Belly and Garbage Delight bring me back.
    I love that you’re “blogging”/recording these lovely little details. 🙂

    • yes, lots of mud these days (which isn’t always a bad thing!)
      the dennis lee was a re-borrow because we enjoyed it so much the last time we checked it out…I’m so happy that my kids enjoy poetry!
      thanks for the encouragement mariko!
