Such a fun day today with our group! I cannot express how happy I am to have the parks back now that school in back in session~
A childhood full of wonderment and play~
We found eggs!
Intently watching them explode~
These kids are all so awesome~
They were so excited and so into the dinosaur eggs~
So much running~
There were several memes going around on Facebook this last week about home education programs for littles that had kids excited that AFTER they worked, they could play all day. And how Kindergarten readiness today means already reading and writing...or in other words, stealing play from children. Play IS the work of childhood. We are seeing the aftermath of stealing this play already. I will do everything in my power to ensure that it is not stolen from my kids~
I love the imaginative play these kids come up with~
And the super cool parks all over Salt Lake City~
Kids in trees...kids in forts...kids with sticks~
Willow found a friend and brought him over to share with the group~
He was a pretty laid back snake~
Of course now that we are home its researching snake breeds, lists of items needed and budgeting so she can get her own. And tonight it is rearrange the bedroom to make room for one more enclosure. Its a zoo in there for sure! Unschooling~
I am a mom to 5 amazing kids and married to my best friend and love of my life. We co-habitate with 1 cat, Asha, 2 dogs, Maggie May and Juniper Wren, a Chinchilla names Ozwald, and a Hamster named Fat Panda. We have lived in Salt Lake City for 13 years by way of Tennessee and Oregon. I love to be with my kids, knit, run, craft, sew, paint,travel, hike and play :) I love our crazy life!
