I’m just popping in to make some notes here.
We’re in the midst of a full weekend/week/weekend. Lots of celebrations (and prepping for said celebrations) this week. Most notably, Lia’s 8th birthday and all the celebrations that go along with this great occasion.
I bought a resource this morning that I think some of you might be interested in. It’s an e-book bundle entitled Learning Through Play. It’s chockfull of ideas and projects for toddlers through middle childhood. I am especially appreciative of the art, gardening, and writing activities. We already did one this morning and my kitchen is overrun with drying mono prints a la Munsch’s The Scream.
It’s only $9.99 this weekend, and well worth the money.
Also, as I am looking forward to the holiday season and sketching out some ideas and plans, I’d just like to remind myself here that ::
Hurry is a form of violence practiced on children.
(My own paraphrase of Eugene Peterson’s, Hurry is a form of violence practiced on time.)
Been mulling over this one quite a bit. It seems to be universally true. True all the time and in all situations.
