california snowflakes...


the roles have switched over here... i'm at work, and my husband is the stay-at-home/homeschooling dad.

it makes these moments of creating together that much more precious for me.

and this space here much less visited, unfortunately.

once again, though, i hope for that to change.  i always like coming back here :)

everywhere classroom {outside}...

a new pack of sidewalk chalk leads to...

writing: practicing letter formation

pride: initiating & completing an activity with success

patience: teaching others letters & spelling, waiting for turns

flexibility: making mistakes and bouncing back

empathy: taking time to teach a younger sibling, to understand her level and teaching to that

fine motor: holding the chalk, writing on a variety of surfaces



a little reminder that learning happens everywhere...
