Lazy Summer Days...
We had a rather lazy day yesterday and just stayed home. We took the kids out to the lake on the property to do some fishing but that only lasted for a few minutes since it appeared that they were spraying pesticides on the banks of the lake and my children are very sensitive to chemicals. I literaly grabbed them and ran since our past experiences with lawn chemicals ended up in months of illness, and endless doctor appointments. We thought about doing all sorts of things but we were all very tired and decided to just rest, Liam is recovering from a cold and has a deep cough and Anna the last 2 days has a very sore neck so we curled up on the couch and watched some movies.
We have had many visits in our tree out front from a local Blue Jay so he was our next subject in our nature journal.

I also tried out a new teddy bear pattern that is in a craft book Adrian got for me. I think I will enlarge this pattern and sew it again in felt. I was thinking of making it the size of an American Girl doll so Anna could put clothes on it. I think this looks like a great bear to join in on a doll tea party. Anna named him Desperaux since he is gray and I made his ears to big he looks a little mousey lol!
Back to the drawing board with this one.
May your unfailing love rest upon us, O LORD, even as we put our hope in you.
