BITS + PIECES: Stills- a weekly collection

This weeks Stills are such a tapestry of strong narratives and unity. Nature has featured heavily in our Montessori lessons at home. Face painting animals, flower and bug chalk drawings, harvesting greens from our veggie garden, learning the names of the herbs and vegetables and their many uses. Preparing meals and making bread with fingers covered in flour. While Ads was home sick with gastro, so unbelievably unwell and the little ones with runny noses we lived simplicity in our daily life. Staying close to home, immersing ourselves in craft, swim classes, picnics outside, telling stories and taking time to be still and read in the late afternoons. With Little fox teething and desiring to be held those moments on the couch have been treasured ones with you both. I'm not sure why you won't sleep Little fox in your cot and you prefer my arms but I look at your beautiful Stokke cot and l want to climb in and embrace sleep. I hope you change your mind. Whilst the washing has piled up, the house fallen into disarray {bound to happen} and the pile of books endless, two were standouts. John Hegley's Stanley's stick and Tico and the golden wings by Leo lionni. Such beautiful narratives. Inspiring us to practise mindfulness. Being mindful of our surroundings and in caring for one another and being accepting of ourselves. We explored this in art and play, and honestly I'll never look at another stick the same way again. Little ones I'll love you to the moon and back always but it's been a long week and I'm exhausted. Now goodnight!
