Autumn Leaves: Painting with Watercolors

by | Nov 9, 2023 | Kids Artwork, Precious Moments: 08, Primary Arts of Language, This Moment | 4 comments


Inspired by our recent Autumn Adventures: Crafting a Leaf Man she independently gathered supplies, set up her paints, and impressed us all painting an autumn masterpiece with watercolors! 🍁👧🎨

The girls have been painting with watercolors every week this fall! They love their Yarka Water Colors Semi-Moist Paint Sets. The paint sets have been put to good use, and it looks like I might need to order a couple replacements to surprise them in their Christmas stockings!

Autumn Leaves

Autumn leaves for now falling,

Red and yellow and brown.

Autumn leaves are now falling,

See them fluttering down.

Autumn leaves from the treetops

Flutter down to the ground,

When the wind blows his trumpet,

See them whirling around.

Autumn leaves when they’re tired,

Settle down in a heap,

At the foot of the old tree,

Soon they’ll all fall asleep.

– Poem the girls recently memorized in Primary Arts of Language

    Brace yourselves: you have a brilliant little artist in the family! What a lovely painting. She has quite the eye for composition and color – this is suitable for framing, don’t you think?!

    Lots of talent in your young artist. May she continue to grow in her talent.

    It is good to see you posting on a regular basis again. Hope all is well with you.

    Hi Jessica,
    If you still have Learn Latin from the Romans, I would like to buy it.

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
