Outside Play

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 ;)

Wednesday's Daily Challenge - October 26, 2005

Regardless of the weather - get outside today. Clean up the yard... go for a walk or run... take the children on a nature hike, etc. Collect interesting things you find for nature table treasures.

Windy & Rainy Day

Our power went out today for over 3 1/2 hours - here are some photos of outside - it was pouring but you can't really tell in the photos.

Pattern Practicing

Keira and I worked on creating patterns today. These are her Big/Small/Big/Small patterns :)

Wool Hat

Here is a photo of a new wool hat I crocheted for myself today:

Monday's Challenge - October 24, 2005

Gather a bag of clothing that your family no longer needs and donate it or place it in your local clothing box.
An Autumn Greeting

"Come," said the Wind to the Leaves one day.
"Come over the meadow and we will play.
Put on your dresses of red and gold.
For summer is gone and the days grow cold."
***Craft this week: Have the children spread shortening or peanut butter over pinecones or corn cobs and then roll in bird seed. Attach a piece of wool yarn and place on a branch for the birds to enjoy.

Sunday's Challenge - October 23, 2005

Take some time today to be spiritual - whatever that may mean for you. Go to church, take a hike, meditate, cherish the good in those around you, etc.

Nice Weekend

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.

Saturday's Daily Challenge - October 22, 2005

Be artistic today. Do something creative or work on a project you've been wanting to complete.

Dress Up with Ms Eileen

Here are some cute dress-up photos of me with a few of the children:

Circle Time and Free Play

A few pictures of my assistant and best friend, Kristin, doing circle time with the children - also some kitchen play this morning:

Yarn Goodies!!!!

We had a lot of fun last night! Here's what I came home with:

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.

Friday's Daily Challenge - October 21, 2005

Do not interrupt other people today. Let them finish and take a short pause before responding.

Village Sheep Run

Tonight I'm going to The Village Sheep 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!

Acorn Gatherings

Here are pictures of our acorn gatherings from yesterday. The children worked hard finding acorns to fill in their baskets yesterday.

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.

Artistic Morning

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:
