Nature and Art
One day this week, my 6-year-old daughter came running inside and was very excited! She had seen a beautiful butterfly in our yard, and wanted me to help her gather a quilt and art supplies so she could go out and draw the butterfly! This just about brought tears to my eyes! I love it when my children have creative ideas on their own! Sure we've done activities like this together as a family. But it was a blessing to me to see my daughter so interested and passionate in watching nature closely, and desiring to capture its beauty through drawing. As you can see, once she began drawing, a couple more things caught her eye that she wanted to draw!
