144/365 Painting

Norah painted this at school yesterday. I love it! I especially love the detail of the tree. 
I kept asking her if someone did the ink and she just painted it but she said no, she drew the whole thing and then painted it in. Eva has been teaching her how to outline her flowers and then paint them in this week so I guess she has caught on. 
I asked her to tell me what the painting was all about. "Oh, it is just a painting" then she was out the door to ride her bike and play. 
I plan to get this girl painting a whole lot more because this is going on my wall. With permission she let me put it in a matting and place it on the hall table.

143/365 Sleepover

We have had the girls since Monday and I am thankful when Grandpa walks in the door from work at the end of the day. It has been busy but fun. Tomorrow we will send them home filled with good food and lots of fun memories. I have played enough Scum for a couple of months.
Here they are on the couch, Norah reading our bird book and Eva writing secret codes ~ we are into Nancy Drew these days and are half way thru a book together.

138/365 Banana Bread

I had a hankering for banana bread today and I also had some bananas in the freezer long overdo for being used up. I also have a gang here this weekend.
So I baked.
