It's been pretty dark and dreary here for days. I didn't think I'd get any outdoor pictures. Then, lo and behold! The sun came out for about 12 minutes around 6 last night.
This is Thor's corner of the yard. He loves it here. The peek of red beyond the trees is our swingset. While the kids are all too old for it, I'm a sentimental fool. The swingset stays.
And, while the boys and Thor have been unable to enjoy the great outdoors, we enjoyed Ryan's leaf chromatography experiment last week. From left, maple, oak and plum leaves, cut up and doused in rubbing alcohol, with coffee filter strips to catch the color coming out of them. A reminder that the leaves will soon be but a memory, and Thor will cry about going outside in the cold.
