The hand of a true artist! E was covered in paint, and she tasted it, too, of course.
After O finished her painting, she painted herself. She painted her hands, feet, and legs. Again, I was SO glad that we did this project outside, and I was so glad that it was warm enough to go swimming after we finished!
The girls were proud of their masterpieces!
This one is by Baby E (12 months old).
And this one is O's (4 years old).
After they finished their artwork, we went swimming and caught a baby soft shell turtle!
O named him Buddy (she names all turtles Buddy), and we observed him for about 10 minutes before letting him go. Evidently he lives on our beach because O accidentally caught him again today! She scooped up a cup of sand, and then said in an almost scared voice "Look! There's something in here!" The turtle was buried in the sand with only his head peeking out. We watched him for a while again before letting him go. Hopefully, we'll see him again tomorrow :)
