The dutiful play of a young child is so magnificent to watch....
Every day, W discovers more and more things he can do...
My recent favorite is block towers...


The concentration...
He places them oh-so carefully...
takes his hands away quickly...
a satisfactory grunt follows...



Looking forward to the fading light of Winter...
The inner glow of contentment..
The unrushed time at home..
especially excited for a Martinmas gathering and lantern walk later on in the week...

"It is a happy talent to know how to play.."
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

  4. such a sweet quote. My Noah has been stacking and stacking lately. He goes through phases of that. Love these photos of W. So magical to watch the little mind at work. :-)

  5. Im so inspired by your last post about the green public, school, how completely fantastic! Is your play school going to be part of it? Cant wait to see it all come together, such positivity!

  6. As a "grown-up", I definately believe it is a talent to know how to play. I remind myself of this often! Happy stacking, little W.
