I just love the bands of late-afternoon sun through the trees. I must remember to come with my good camera soon!

Crispy got purple hair colour temporarily sprayed into his hair at the Midland Fair (while I was in Louisiana), and he liked it so much that Jackie said he could dye his hair semi-permanently for the last few weeks of school if he was good. And he has been really good- enough that his teacher emailed us to tell how great he has been!
So... here's Jackie applying the dye ("Amplified Manic Panic Purple Haze"!)-
Here it is being rinsed after setting for 45 minutes-
And here's the final result, not dry yet-
But outside you can really see it!-
Subtle- but it's definitely purple (and he's acolyting tomorrow!).

So Crispy made a picture of his friends, his pets-
Then he drew a picture of Yin & Yang and how they sleep (like Yin & Yang)-
And then he drew a regular Yin and Yang and started putting opposites on either side: life & death, joy & suffering, friends and enemies.
He told his teacher that you can't have one without the other- if you didn't have suffering you wouldn't recognise joy- but then he said he was going to put love and hate on there, but you can have love without hate so he didn't know where to put it.
His Sunday School teacher was pretty impressed with this- and so am I! Do you think he's going to grow up and be a priest, it does run in the family?

And here's the Google map of our little walk (since updating my phone the GPS works MUCH better- even though the trees are now almost in full leaf) http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msa=0&msid=106098798412358065485.0004697fcbd593bdff445

Now hangs on the wall in my office!
The triptych was done by Jodi Grogan for the silent auction at the outreach fundraiser on Saturday. I thought it was fabulous and said so, and then found that at the end of the auction Michelle & John Minks had bought it to give to me! Thanks!!!
