A Crayon holder for W, made from a thick tree branch and the ever handy hole drill...
Strawberry cupcakes for Daddy's birthday!
Springtime housekeeping rhythm..
Amidst our busy week, I was able to observe a full morning of preschool at our local Waldorf school yesterday.
I hope to observe a few more mornings before the school year is over. I returned home feeling relaxed and even more enthusiastic to incorporate aspects into my parenting and every day life. (not to mention realizing over again that this is the setting I hope to be a part of one day very soon!)
Voices are soft and melodic.
Little hands discover, help one another, and clasp together to form a ring.
The children are touched in a curative way. This is not commonplace in schools today, and children are missing out on this experience...to be touched lovingly by a caregiver. I am not referring to hugging or the sort...more so, holding a hand that is straying from focus, stroking the back of a frustrated little one, leading a child back to an activity...
It was a wonderful morning...
Daddy and W, beach vacation 2010
This weekend, we celebrate Daddy's 29th birthday...we are both officially on our way to 30!
And it feels awesome!
Daddy is flying through the air after jumping off the swingset....
I love you, Papa!
