Heart Crayons

This year, I decided to teach my children the true meaning of Valentine’s day: day-after-Valentine’s-day 50% off sales on gourmet chocolate. I bought one heart-shaped box for Papa. We shared it over the course of a few days. When the box was empty, he gave it to Iris. It remained empty until we re-melted down all of the crayons that we had turned into block shapes in order to turn them into heart-shapes. I sewed protective stretch-denim bags for each of the crayons. Iris decided a heart-shaped box is the perfect place for heart-shaped crayons. I have no idea what we will do with so many giant heart-shaped crayons. Here, you can see Martin testing out the red one.

First Photo in the New House

My children have been sick for months.

As soon as I think it is getting better, it gets worse.

I move their feverish bodies from room to room as I paint the walls.
