I’ll admit it: blogging can be so overwhelming at times. Though, I feel driven to record in order to progress. So I try and make changes to my focus…how we do things…
The result (perhaps you’ve noticed), 🙂 I’m trying to post only once a day, and sometimes (like the 4th, I just give up). kiddo daily delights are too important to us to miss a day, though, I just cannot find time to do everything and blog about it as well.
So the latest is to post two kiddo daily delight posts a week:
- of our kiddo daily delight with friends – that we do on Tuesday morning…yes, you are always welcome. Leave me a comment if you have questions/need directions.
- to choose 1 book a week – and do activities all week long around the book and themes discovered within.
And there you have it. 🙂 This week, we’ve been drinking in much of Robert Louis Stevenson’s poetry found within A Child’s Garden of Verses, illustrated by Joanna Isles. If I were to choose some overall themes within the poetry chosen, I’d say…
It fits right along with much of the kiddos’ burning desires of late. One lovely afternoon this week, just the builder and I read together (the others were napping). We nearly read the entire collection. Some of our favorite poems within the lovely book:
- Pirate Story
- Looking Glass River
- Good Play
- Where Go the Boats
- My Bed is Like a Boat
- The Swing
Here are some of our latest outdoor adventures:
landscaping with dad…or at least exploring grandma’s solar lights
park adventures with friends
exploring our adjacent field – full of bugs, deer, and growing things of all kinds.
gardening – oh how they love to help me water with the strainer (idea from our neighbor Janet…no, we don’t have a traditional watering can). 🙂 The best is their excitement as they count our growing tomatoes or peppers.
forging new paths – or sledding through the tall grass with Preston
