I took Keira and Maia outside today. I also let Maia hold her new dolly for awhile when it arrived in the mail today (it's really for Christmas but I thought one or two hugs couldn't hurt, then she got safely tucked away for December) - Keira had fun in the woods in the back, climbing on the rocks... I also took a photo of our hyperactive English Setter, Stoli ;)

"Come," said the Wind to the Leaves one day.

It's been a really nice weekend so far... last night my husband took my dd, Keira, outside with the flashlight for over an hour... they had so much fun together exploring and hanging out in the play fort... my oldest dd was helping me wind up some yarn while I worked on my scarf a bit. Then today, I took Keira to the Waldorf Fair... we had so much fun and met so many nice people. I've been looking into Lifeways training but now I'm seriously considering signing up for the part-time Waldorf teacher training at Sunbridge college instead. We'll see. I may call them again on Monday to see when the next session starts. My husband is supportive so it's definitely an option.
Here are some goodies we bought at the fair.... the mobile I bought for Maia broke on the way home so I am going to attach the people to a new ring of some kind tonight or tomorrow... I bought Keira some beeswax and she played with it as soon as we got home. She also got a beautifully scented wool stuffed star.

Mangos de Uraguay wool yarn (deep red), Another skein of the green angora yarn to complete my scarf, two skeins of Cascade wool yarn (grey and pink) and a pair of size 11 knitting needles. I'm not sure yet but I think I'm going to use the red yarn for another scarf (my knitting is still in beginner stages) and the Cascade yarn for crocheted wool longies for Maia.

Tonight I'm going to The Village Sheep http://www.thevillagesheep.com/ with my friend and assistant, Kristin. I can't wait! Yarn Heaven! Then we're going to dinner next door and getting a BIG bottle of wine to go with it!
I'll show you the goodies I got tomorrow!
If anyone is interested in these, I'd be happy to pass some of them along... many of them do not have caps however so if the main purpose is for crafting bendy folk they may not work. Also, many of these are sprouting so we may work on nuturing some seedlings in the daycare to plant in a few years.
This morning we listened to a Kindermusic CD and danced and sang - the children loved it! Then we made some artistic pumpkin scenes:
To quiet down we did Quiet Art... we turned the lights off and colored with white crayons on black paper to the sounds of soft music:
