Here's Lucas at one of his favorite pastimes: arts and crafts. We keep our kitchen table overflowing with paper, glue sticks, small glueable objects, watercolor paint, markers, crayons, stickers, scissors, and even a hole punch. (When we eat at a table*, we eat in the dining room.)
We've been spending more time than usual inside. Why? The damn fires. Here's a photo I took about an hour or an hour and a half before sunset this evening.
Nice, eh? Those colors are pretty damn accurate, and yes, the sun really did seem to be that far away.
On the upside, it hasn't been as warm lately as it usually is this time of year. Hmmmm. . . I wonder why! :P
*Our big comfy couch has this nifty fold-down flap (I call it "the bachelor flap") in the middle that makes a nice little table and has drink holders. It's verrrrry easy to get into the habit of eating there.
