Last May, during part of our hiatus in Longview, Karston and Kyrie painted birdhouses at their Nonna’s. Karston chose blue paint; Kyrie chose pink but ended up mixing the pink and blue together making purple.
Well, they painted them in preparation for moving, as something to look forward to hanging up at our new house. And we hung them pretty soon after we got here. And then we waited. And waited. And waited. They really wanted a bird to make a nest in at least one of them, but it never happened. And a year later, their birdhouses looked like this.
No wonder a bird didn’t make a nest in the blue one. It had no bottom! Nonna bought Karston a new bird house to paint, and Kyrie repainted hers.
They chose the same colors this year.
Pink and Blue.
The birdhouses are waiting on a coat of sealer before being hung. We will wait again. And pray a little birdie or two decide to make those colorful houses their homes.
