I wish I could host a playdate with you, my bloggy friends. I'd invite you in, start the coffee maker and direct any kiddos following you to the stairs that lead to our always messy playroom. My kids would love the time with friends, however new or old the friendships are.
But since that playdate likely won't happen, and many of you are nowheres near Texas, let me just welcome you into a little corner of our playroom. The corner without toys strewn all about. I love this corner.
A lifetime ago, back in June, while we were waiting for the phone call to let us know we passed court in Ethiopia, we needed an inside, near-the-phone distraction.
I had blank canvases in the back of my closet so the day seemed to be the best to pull them out and let the kids paint! I gave no instructions, but limited the paint to three colors that were already in the playroom. I love the whimsy they add to the room, as well as the memory of painting while we waited.
If you are in Texas, come on over. I'll get the coffee ready,
