Today we met with a few other homeschooling families at the park for the first picnic of the season (for us, anyway). I thought the girls were unusually charming today, and couldn’t stop taking photos.
Kinsley thought the idea of sliding sounded really fun, but couldn’t actually bring herself to go down the slide. “Mama!” she called to me, “Do you think I will conk my head?”. As her Uncle Eric would say, so many phobias, so little time…
Sophie tried to play it cool.
In reality she reminded me of Mr. Wilson from Dennis the Menace.
Silas gave Kinsley some sort of weapon and instructed her on the art of sword fighting.
Which seemed to bore Sophie immensely.
The line down Kinsley’s face is the result of a run-in she had with Frances, involving the door frame. Oddly enough, that wound hasn’t been nearly the trauma as the skinned knee. I think it has to do with the fact that she can’t see the scratch on her face, where as she can look at the scratch on her knee whenever she feels like it. Poor little thing.
All in all, I think they had a great time. They both crashed as soon as we got home.
