The Joy Of Owning Beautiful & Educational Toys

4 years ago, I fell in love with the Montessori philosophy that children should be given beautiful, wooden, well-made toys. It resonated so well with my beliefs & it just made sense. Though 4 years later, realistically it is almost impossible to buy ONLY wooden toys for my boys. We gladly adopt hand-me-downs plastic & battery… Continue reading The Joy Of Owning Beautiful & Educational Toys

Art & sunshine to chase away those Monday blues

We missed school today. Our routines are established as such Mondays are carefree days filled with art & random creativity. I like Mondays to let free the inner creative soul in children. It's such a beautiful way to start the first day of the week. This is the day the LORD has made. We will rejoice… Continue reading Art & sunshine to chase away those Monday blues
