l is for longest picture in the world

my eliza in her last days as a preschooler asked if we could draw the longest picture in the world.

her inspiration came from just seeing the ramona and beezus movie.

we used crayons, pencils, markers, paint all on frustratingly thin newsprint (the dog hair, sand and dust on the wood floor didn’t help either).  it was a several day activity.

we recalled our summer from way back at harvest time to buying a new car to painting the house to visiting the mountains and chicago to school supply shopping to back yard fires to the very recent pvc sprinkler construction.

longest picture in the world - 60

longest picture in the world - 56

it was therapeutic to relive the memories together.

longest picture in the world - 53

longest picture in the world - 45

longest picture in the world - 37

i don’t know how long this will adorn our dining room…maybe until we’re ready to leave the past a memory only in our minds.

    This is amazing! Don’t get rid of it, roll it up and save it in a tube. What a special memory. Maybe we’ll make our own before my boys go back to school.
