Ahhh summer. You know that feeling that comes with summertime? What is it? Oh ya, light, warmth. Every year I have to remind myself that Idaho does indeed have a sun. June rolls around and it's like, "Oh hey there Sun, we missed you." And then it snows the next day. Just kidding. Full disclosure, I have known it to snow here in June. But that's just crazy el nino doin' it's business. Idaho summers are normally perfect. Not too hot, not too cold, just right. We're talkin' Goldilocks-after-she-finds-the-little-bears-porridge perfect. It makes you wanna go outside as much as possible. Ezra is my little outdoorsy boy. He'd live in the grass if he didn't sneeze like a maniac every time he sat in the stuff.
So on one of his brief visits indoors due to a sneezing attack, I had him help me make a freezer paper stencil of his favorite Beatles song. We just used some Freezer Paper, Tulip fabric paint, and a T-shirt we already had. Some of the lines didn't turn out perfectly, but that's just the nature of having kids help paint. And Ezra likes his shirt, so who cares?
I think creating should be a happy thing, not always a perfect thing. So when we pulled off the freezer paper and some of the lines had bled through, we just sang "Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on."
And thus ends todays life lesson from The Beatles. Thanks for attending, you all get an A+.
