Rainbow Week

First, I wanted to thank everyone for their kind words on my yarn dyeing tutorial. They mean a lot to me. That colorway was something I had been searching for but could never find so I had to make my own :) It's been used for K's socks, C baby's sleepy sack, K's secret surprise, ornaments, and more ornaments (to appear this Wednesday). It's my favorite yarn colorway so I know I'll be making and using more to come!

My friend Shelley over at Waldorfmama is celebrating a week of rainbows starting today and I thought I would join her. Here are a couple of our rainbows bringing happiness to our home.

Rainbow broom

C's favorite toy - the rainbow stacker (missing a piece stolen by the kitties right before the picture was taken)

K has really been having a hard time lately. With turning 4 soon, the impending move, Daddy being gone for 2 months, and just her strong-willed nature - I can completely understand! We are trying really hard to take some time away from our stressful lives even more right now to help her through all of this. Last weekend we went to her favorite spot (only a 5 minute long bike ride away) to feed the geese. This really made her day.

She climbed up a tree to get a better vantage point for feeding them when we started getting low on bread.

Kevin and his favorite gray goose.

I hope everyone had a great weekend!

LOVE the rainbow broom, that's new to me. Where did you get it?

Kimberley said...

I sympathize with all of you! My Mia goes through similar "difficult" can be very hard for everyone mother gave me the best advice when I was at my wits end right before Mia turned 4 she said, "this too shall pass." And it did...and it will again! We love those same rainbow toys at our house!
PS-love the new header!!!

Nicole, I am sure you are doing a wonderful job at giving K what she needs. So good of you to give yourselves the time to slow down. Good luck with the packing! (I've done it way too many times...)

And very impressed with the proximity to the goose - yikes, that'd make me nervous :)

Cristina said...

Nature is so soothing. She looks so beautiful in the tree...I would love to see more children in trees.
