We had such fun visiting a strawberry patch today. Arthur literally ate 2 pints of strawberries, and came back empty handed. Betty filled up her container. When asked if she had any yet, she said, "Actually, I don't like strawberries." Which is true, as she avoids most fruits. But she had lots of fun picking them.

While Coraline loves drawing, Betty has chosen to make art in a mixed medium. Somewhere under this artistically-arranged pile of felt and string, used to be one of Nana's statues. Betty also neatly stacked felt squares to the side, and arranged a line of marbles around the edge of a picture frame.
And not to be left out, Arthur recently drew this train, with each car a different color (like the one I painted on his bedroom wall).

Coraline has decided that she wants to be an artist when she grows up. She'll spend close to an hour carefully working on a drawing, and then when she's done, she'll carry it around with her for the rest of the day (often sleeping with it at naptime and at bedtime).
One phase she's currently on is creating a series of drawings involving lots of differently-colored squiggles.
We also had trouble picking her up from daycare one day, as she wanted to finish this drawing. We didn't know that she had figured out how to do stencils, or even to color within the lines!
