After reading SouleMama's post about art in the morning, I decided to give it a try! I think it will help create a more peaceful, serene setting during the morning rush. Too often, Big Brother is running around underfoot begging for books, getting in Dad's work bag, spilling syrup, etc. while my husband is trying to get his things together and I'm making breakfast.
I can't believe creating a focused early morning activity (whether it be a puzzle, art, or a practical life exercise) didn't occur to me before!
Today he worked on watercolors (easily our favorite media!) and after the kitchen was cleaned up, I joined in. I love playing with colors and today I also felt a little Beatrix Potter-esque. Wishful thinking for spring with my trees and bushes in bloom!
