summer sabbath: dragon play

charcoal drawing of dragonThe creativity of our kiddos has just ramped up this weekend!  Just when I thought I needed to go buy some sidewalk chalk, I walked out to these charcoal creations on our back patio.  What beauties!  They’ve also been baking dragon bread and cooking dragon soup in our fire pit.  I’m sure if you came over, you’d be offered some samples.
