"At the end of the day, as the sun sets and we head back in, we have to be at peace with who we are and with the travelers we’ve been given on the journey. It’s tempting to look out and see the perfection of those around you, but be careful."
I love this essay, on the "perfect family life", from Rachel.
We are using these blank books for this little activity. Janey is just getting the hang out of peeling the stickers off, and we put together these little "girls" into the books. She chooses all sorts of outfits (she loves making the choices-getting to be the "boss" for once, and I just let my preference for matching go out the window) and then I stick them on for her, although she is getting better at this precision also.
Two great finds at the library this week-I am so picky about illustrations and story books. There are so many dumb ones, there really are, and I wonder how they ever get published. But the ones with a nice story, good vocabulary, and beautiful illustrations are like little gems to me.
Beautiful illustrations for this counting rhyme book using the "over in the meadow where the green grass grows" song.
