the nest

the first thing he said when i arrived this morning was "i want to make a nest for my baby bird".
he had woken up in the middle of the night with this creative idea and was excited to make it happen.

i, pumped that he came up with a creative project unrelated to star wars, could barely hold my excitement about making a nest either.

and i must say, we rocked the nest making. it took quite a while (in kid terms), lots of layers, half a bottle of glue, some sticks and leaves and a whole lot of cardboard to make baby bird a lovely, sturdy permanent home.

to top it all off, he who refuses to be photographed (except the time when i convinced him that someone using the force had taken over my camera and i had no control of it) even let me capture the moment.

i heart making art with him.

mmmm, isn't it intriguing that when you are busy nesting in your home again, here comes the universe to give you the chance to do it in another way -

groovy!! I LOVE it when that happens!

I've missed you, we're not connected yet so it'll be a little while yet, but I'm glad to see that you are still vivacious!!
