:: while our christmas turned more commercialized than i hoped, my heart smiles that all those types of toys are soon forgotten about and my little one chooses her shells and tree blocks for play. and i can not say how this little nature lover loves gifts of crystals, geodes and minerals or trips to museums or nature centers.
:: a butterfly created from a pine cone, feathers and pieces of corn husks.
:: this is what became of her carrots
:: prism play
:: a girls day out, playing with beads and patterns
my little one had a nice break from school. i did not realize how much paperwork she was being given at school. handouts and dittos that are passed off as learning. and handouts sent home that fill our time completing.
with some time off, we have a nice rhythm going at home. filled with many opportunities for learning throughout the day. it's more of a natural process. and i desire days where we let my little one's curiosities and exploration lead the way. i desire her learning from self discovery.
