Creating

 Rowan is a creator, crafter, planner, builder....  He is always getting out the craft supplies~
 

 Lately he has been into making webs through the house.  We had to have a discussion about wool yarn vs acrylic yarn the other day and I had to just take a deep breath and let it go...it's just yarn~

 It does create problems for the rest of us giant people that want to go downstairs~
 

 So he agreed to keep most of it to the playroom area~
 This was his city with the web high above~

He wants to learn to knit and I am sure he will be soon enough~


Then there is painting.  He paints daily.  So many paintings that are very important and special to him.  Where do I keep them all? We only have so much wall space~





 So he decided to make a map out of some for his various creatures to have a world to play in~
 It folds up nicely~

 And then he wrote a book with some~
 He dictated it and I wrote exactly what he said~









How completely adorable.  I will treasure it forever~

It's so great to be an unschooler~

Salt lake Unschoolers Playdate

A few friends came to play today~
 
 We were supposed to go to the park, but the weather was whacky so I said "come here!"  Some went to the park and had a great time and some come to play out our house and they seemed to have a great time too!
 The littles ran and played and the bigs played CAH~

 So cute~

Another great day to be an Unschooler~

Woodland School for Two

 
 A very rainy day at woodland school made it perfect for puddle jumping~
 
 No one else braved the cold and rain with us.  In fact, we had the farm to ourselves~


 So we walked around and said hello to the resident farm life~

 Most everyone was snoozing~
 And got to see the new members of the farm~
 
 So cute~
 
 These babes are really growing~


 


 The rain was starting to really come down so we headed back to the car~

 



 Oh how he loves woodland school~
