"A portrait of my children, once a week, every week in 2013"

Linen: "Find me in red". She lends herself to bright colors, due to the passion and romance in her heart.
Lily: "Nose in a book". Lily has given herself to reading the classics this rainy season. She's recently completed 'Alice in Wonderland', cover to cover! Now on to that in hand. The Secret Garden was a personal fave of mine at 10.
Liberty: The rain has brought this dreamer into her element. She plays the puddles as one who leaps from cloud to cloud. Her song is best heard in the rain.
Harvest: Caught this one in the few seconds he paused from front-porch-pirate-play. With his 7th birthday coming up, I want to put these last few weeks of being 6 in a box, wrapped and hidden for another rainy day.
Pip: Ah! This young lad can break me of any rainy day blues. What sunshine! The antlers are but the icing, yes?
Henri: The coat he's wearing was my brother's! He refuses the hat that matches. Shucks! I'm going to eat his earlobes for a midmorning snack!
The moon made a Cheshire appearance last Thursday night. Grinning as he peeked through the clouds, reassuring us of his exsistance. Until then, the rain had fallen for 10 days straight days over our valley. I found rest and peace as the house was quiet, listening to a thirsty ground marinate deeply with what earth would need for color, come spring.
