some G time.
A has been sick and on the couch for the last 2 days, and so G and I have been doing all kinds of things together so that A can have some peace and quiet and rest.
One project has been pulling things in from the garden since the temps look like they will dip into the 30s at night this week. The end is near. We have been dehydrating trays (and trays) of herbs, pulling pumpkins and squash, and retrieving the daily basket of the last tomatoes, raspberries and cucumbers of the season. He loves picking things, identifying plants and snipping flowers for our nature table.
He has also been enjoying doing "his own" crafts - today for one project he painted some ceramic leaves with great fall colors.
While the boys are an amazing duo and love each other dearly, it is also interesting to see G sparkle with the quiet one on one time. And he really loves taking care of his big brother and making sure he is comfortable...or maybe he just likes operating the ice maker and the digital thermometer! ;)
