celebrating the blessings of everyday gifts

about 2 weeks ago we spent the morning in the garden planting sunflower seeds in peat pots. we were so thankful for the warm sunny day. we also painted watercolor pictures of the flowers. i made a quick stop by the grocery store florist for a few stems of sunflowers to paint from life, but they had mostly roses and carnations, no sunflowers. so we had to settle for using pictures from our gardening books and the seed packets. i thought they did a beautiful job.
S's painting. (he added the latin name of the sunflower)
B's painting (this is definitely the mammoth variety!) everyday gift:homeschool in the garden...gardenschool? ;o)
