Watercolor Pumpkins

I love Autumn. I love relief from summer, the changing colors, the smells.... I love seeing stacks of pumpkins outside the grocery store, love the fall decor on the doorsteps, and I love how the season brings cravings of snuggles and hot cocoa (even if it's not technically "cold enough" for cocoa here in Texas).

We opened our windows this morning and allowed the cool breeze to filter through the house while we read books, wrote out vocabulary books, played around with math, and painted these little beauties:






Skinny pumpkins, fat pumpkins, tall pumpkins, squatty pumpkins, tiny pumpkins, enormous pumpkins... we love pumpkins.  We're all looking forward to the Thanksgiving pumpkin pie come November!  (And hopefully Granny's Chocolate Meringue Pie as well!)

Oh, wow! What great paintings! I think I'm going to do that very same project in our home school. Thanks for sharing! If I post photos on my blog of the paintings we do, I'll leave a back link to your blog for credit :) You've reminded me to get the fall decor out!
