Asha has turned into our photographer. She takes the camera out to the yard and takes beautiful pictures of nature. She also takes a lot of pictures of me, which has been a different experience all together. I try to be accommodating and do my best at posing for her. It is only fare after all the modeling she has done for this blog.

We started getting raspberries this week. A handful a day and just enough to eat on the spot and enjoy. Asha took the following two pics.

Jerome, Asha, and Kai enjoyed a fun art camp in Moscow with cousins. Here is Jerome rinsing out the dye of the tie-dye shirts.

I am impressed at how pretty they turned out.

The summer fun continues.

Here is what my kids remember.

flowers drawn with oil pastel
clay beads
pin wheel
hacky sacs made of balloons and bird seeds
rock painting
tote decorating
map monsters
making shields with card board
face painting
food (fruit, veggies, marshmallows, ect.) sculpture
making rhythm with cups and maracas
graffiti wall
doing a play

I wish you could come spend some time with us. Jerome still calls James his best friend. Maybe you can get me started back up with sewing. I FINALLY cleaned up my sewing space this past week. Asha helped me fold the fabric pile.

I love that you are Asha's muse. You should have posted some of her pictures of you. The rasberries look yummy.

Marie, you are so talented. Those shirts turned out great - I can never get the colors to turn out that vivid and stay - what's the trick?

I don't know your email, so I just wanted to check in and let you know that I started a quilt blog and will be having a book giveaway from Penguin Books soon. If you're interested, check it out! :)

The kids did these at an art camp, so I can't take any credit for them. You can buy the dye at and they come out very vibrant. we did it one year for family reunion. It was great.
