I've been doing this job of Stay at Home mom for over 5 years now. It's such a rewarding job even though it does have it's challenges. Just today I went to our beautiful park with my 2 year old son. We enjoyed the warmth of the sun, the green grass, and the Japanese gardens. I packed his backpack with watercolors, brushes and his sketch book. Amongst the beautiful sounds of a creek and the shade of the trees, we painted and he explored the creek. It was perfection. The one thing I love about painting with children is watching their concentration. We don't talk a lot, but he shares with me how the color changes on the paper. I love watching him in his work.
Little man's backpack ready for our adventure
Painting in the park
Exploring the creek
It wouldn't be an Oregon childhood without Keens
Happiness is THIS moment
It wouldn't be a trip to the park without a little swing time
Then it was nap time for my littlest, and time to paint with my oldest
