Summer in the city, part 1
I love starting the day like this - I feel like I'm really living when I'm outside, especially in the morning.
After sketching, the kids played and explored for awhile and then we headed home, feeling cool, accomplished, and hungry. I think the kids were surprised when I continued with schoolwork when we got home, but I'm a homeschooling mom and that's what homeschooling moms do. You would think they've caught on to that by now.
Tomorrow morning, probably a repeat of today.
Photo: Flower on the left is white campion. The plant on the right with the long stem and white bulb-like flower is field garlic in bloom. I don't know the name of the flower in the middle, but that's the flower I ended up sketching today. It was a hot and hazy morning, but with iced-coffee, cool morning breeze off the river, and laughing kids, it was bliss. Welcome, summer!
