Muddy days are a plenty this time of year and we've been ankle deep in it. Some days, the mud room in our house looks like its been attacked my a huge bowl of chocolate pudding. I wipe many muddy faces; glasses caked with dirt and mud, wet socks, muddy teeth even. It's all a part of our day. The cold weather months are really a time for us to learn so much about personal care and dressing. Each child learns how to dress him/herself and to put their things away so they don't get lost. This is the most important part of our day, I think, our true life curriculum.
I return to Sunbridge for teacher training March 18th. It feels like there is too much of a stretch of time in between and I crave some kind of artistic outlet, especially this time of year while yearning for the warm months. My new creative outlet was born out of this desire last Winter, but has truly come to life this Winter. I'm spending hours on the computer researching and planning (my eyes hurt. I don't like it.) and working a lot with my hands, too. It's been very rewarding thus far and I believe will continue to be even more fruitful in the months to come in so many ways. I'll describe everything in my next post.
