because it's fun to make 'paint' with dried kidney beans, a hammer and some water
because sometimes you want to smash up gumnuts with a large wooden tree and have a good look at them under a microscope

The above photos were all taken throughout the course of yesterday. A typical 'home day' with Mama busy in the kitchen while the children get up to their own busy-ness outside. Sometimes I feel so very tired of the never-ending clean up. Believe me, my patience wears thin when I discover Indigo in her fourth outfit of the day and it's only 8:30am.
But yesterday, with the help of my camera, I saw the innocence and wonder contained in all those little messes. I saw that they were beautiful.
