Grace's Things

Originally uploaded by pwinn.
Grace asked me for her own blog last week but I told her she could have one when she is a little older. In the meantime, she would like to to share a few photos of what she has been up to lately. First, is a corner of her bedroom closet. She has lots of little stuffed animals and she likes to make houses and gardens for them. These critters are lucky enough to have a tree even!

Grace loves to draw and paint. Here is a teapot that she painted for me. She used acrylic paint.

Finally, one of her favorite poems. She really doesn't like going to
bed while it is still light out!

~Bed In Summer~

In winter I get up at night
And dress by yellow candle-light,
In summer, quite the other way,
I have to go to bed by day.

I have to go to bed and see
The birds still hopping in the tree,
Or hear the grown-up people's feet
Still going past me in the street.

And does it not seem hard to you,
When all the sky is clear and blue,
And I should like so much to play,
To have to go to bed by day?

-Robert Louis Stevenson

Thanks for looking!

I am going to share this poem with my four children, who also don't like to go to bed when it's still light out. Hopefully they'll feel a little better knowing they aren't the only ones!! :-)

Grace, thank you for sharing pictures of your special corner and your painting! I showed it to my girls and they really enjoyed it, especially the horse in the barn.

PS - The poem is wonderful, too!
