The last of them

but probably my most favorite.

It was Marlo's first time painting, and I was amazed at her patience. She and Sabrina sat together for over an hour. She was really into it most of the time, but then she'd get giggly, and Sabrina would get exasperated because she was trying to concentrate.

Sabrina wanted her painting to be perfect, and was trying so hard to stay in the lines. I even heard her tell herself, "Okay, Sabrina, don't shake."

Remind you of anybody?

I love these photos, because they remind me of how I felt right then. Those two beautiful little girls painting together, my mom and I sitting there reading our books in the perfect weather at an amazing house where I was able to be with my family for a whole week...I was, and still am, overwhelmed with such love and gratitude.
