My Boys

I'm starting a very casual, informal homeschooling program with Burl.  I've been thinking about the different interests my boys have and how I can help encourage the development of their natural talents.  I thought I'd share a little bit about each of them.

Loves numbers (counting, adding, taking away, putting a quantity on things, "Mommy, I love you 63, 64, and 65 one hundreds.  Is that a lot?"), bugs, animals (especially kitties), destroying things (shredding paper with scissors, whacking blackberry vines with sticks, stabbing holes in cardboard boxes, ripping paper and books, etc.), hero/ villain relationships, making up stories with me (we each make up a part and add on to the other's), pirates, climbing things as high as he can go, throwing balls.

Balls, women, water (swimming, playing, and drinking), baby animals, forts!, anything that gets him to smile and laugh, dirt, sand, bugs.
Enjoy your day, Friends!


Hi Friends!  Free world-wide shipping this week on our Sweet Peppermint Lip Balm.  Enjoy!



Today I sent a few letters to some friends, just because, and it felt really nice.  I don't do it often enough, I'd like to change that.  I think that will be a new and revised goal for me.

My shoulder is kinked today (everyday, really) from having my babe attached all night long.  He's nearly a year, and I wonder when he'll start sleeping without having to nurse all night.  Physically I long for it; I miss sleeping with my arms curled in and the blankets all up to my face.  Yet, I know when the days come where he sleeps without nursing, I'll miss it.  So here I go again, trying to savor these (sometimes difficult) days, despite the kinked shoulder.

Happy Wednesday, Friends.  Thanks for stopping by.



did you feel it?  this morning, i did.  the air is changing.  the babe and i went on an early morning walk - it was crisper, dewy-er, and cozier - all very good things.

have you had a look through flickr polaroid week 2012?  it's pretty fabulous.

happy tuesday, friends.
