Nora's Birds

Grandma found a T-shirt at Orscheln's and I found a yard of chicken fabric at The Quilt Basket, and when we combined them, this was the (absolutely fabulous) result.  
"I Love Chicks."  
Sometimes I'll see her holding both her hands over the chicks.

Today, Nora took quite a few pictures of birds in the trees and at the feeders, which inspired us to make a bird observation book.  We went out to the orchard and set up camp with a box of crayons and the smell of grass so real I had to dream.

And as Nora prays, "Thank you, God, for this love."  (And when she's been sick, and we've been indoors for most of the day, and we quarrel like caged birds do, it's not easy, but this is real and I wouldn't trade it for any dream.)


  1. Lisa, I absolutely adore the last picture. :)

  2. Yeah, that picture of you two is the most beautiful thing I've seen today. And just so you know, the sky was really beautiful today. Blue like your eyes sky, enormous exploded cotton clouds, golden sunshine beautiful.And this is still more beautiful. <3

  3. I love the barn swallow drawing. I don't think Shay has read this entry yet, but I know she's going to be jealous of Nora's chicken outfit. You kids are neat.

  4. I love all of this, but yes, the last picture is so very beautiful. I can't wait to come out and visit. :)
