I am trying very hard to keep things still this week.
Any day that I don't have to leave the house feels like such a treasure. My children can't handle more than two days in a row at home (and usually that second day is full of bickering). It's a delicate balance getting them days out and me days in. Spring break. It's going well.
I have been, almost constantly, daydreaming about summer.
I just can't wait for the warmth and the time outside. We have more big plans for those few short months, and I can't wait to enjoy last years project.
I have been substituting as an assistant teacher at a Montessori preschool this year. Mostly, I would cover when someone was sick, had an appt, etc. Now I am working a full schedule covering for a teacher that just had a new baby. It has certainly been a busy time for us, but what an incredible place and equally incredible group of women. The project above was inspired by one of their activities. I gathered beautiful objects from around the house and printed the matching words on card stock. My little readers go through and pair each object with it's matching card. So easy, so fun, and so visually appealing.
I am really hoping to start some new projects over this "break." I had this sad feeling that the week is almost over, but then I reminded myself that it is only Wednesday morning... and one full day at home is full of possibilities.
