It's been a good few weeks since I have posted here. Sometimes I don't have the time or will to post as often as I'd like....but never the less, here we are.
At 3- 3.5, W was the oldest child in the group of 6. I witnessed a lot of his behaviors (sometimes pushing, yelling, even hitting) and sometimes felt embarrassed. It was good practice for me to observe the reactions of the teacher (that is, focusing the attention on the child was was hurt, rather than admonishing the "offender".) Many times, W would then offer a hug to the child after seeing that this is what the adults did when someone was hurt or upset. This is kind of sticky for a lot of people. Nobody wants to see their own child be hit, and its also so difficult for the parent of the "hitter", as well as the children involved...
A few recent photos from some corners of our home..

A very special cape created for W by his Garden Gate teacher..
We'll be back to River Valley, God willing, in Fall 2014 when W enters kindergarten at age 5. I'll be looking for PT work as an assistant or lead teacher at the school at this time. So, my master plan is to remain operating playgarden until Fall 2014. My teacher training will be over and we'll no longer be paying my tuition!
In other catching up "news", here are the beautiful dymondwood crowned hair sticks Jay got me for Christmas.
In the first 2 photos, I'm wearing them in a brioche bun, which is very simple to do. This link will take you to my most favorite youtube channel for simple long hair style tutorials:) The third bun is called The Elling Woman Bun, which is also relatively easy:)
My Lilla Rose hair clip party is this coming Saturday and I'm very excited. My mom and I are making some delicious food (create-your-own Miso soup, roasted veggie sandwiches, and more!) and I'm just as much looking forward to that! There is still time to enter the giveaway for a free Flexi clip:)
Thanks for reading and stay warm:)
