Quiet Time Views

Willow made up with the snow today and persistent prodding drove her outside. Within seconds, she was squealing with delight at the white world around here. The snow is still deep, but the warm sun has changed the powder to the perfect kind of snow for sledding. We played outside for a long time, with Willow really putting her whole body into the work of play. We're inside now, with sleeping little ones, awaiting more snow tonight.

Sleeping

Here are some scenes from quiet time last week.  This book is an interesting read.  It's translated from German, so the title is a little awkward when compared with the contents.  It's a communication book, about how people listen and how we talk to each other, how we can be empathetic and equal in in our interactions.  Good stuff, but a tough read that will probably require multiple efforts.

Building

From last week to this, we've traded Lincoln Logs for Muffy Vanderbear.  Roan's wearing my pink overalls from when I was little, and his love of them is great.  He's sleeping with a pair of safety goggles.

Making the beds

Chores are traded for rest today, though I'll repeat the sheets routine tomorrow.  Time to cuddle up with another book and enjoy the quiet afternoon before the rowdiness that comes when Mike gets home from work.

I was sitting by him reading it. Yes, the title is too funny. The book says many times that it should be "It is with the heart one can see clearly." Gotta love translation variations.

Willow inherited mine and one from a friend. Roan plays with a bear that is similar in size, a Boyds bear, if you remember those. He wears Muffy's shirt with a bow tie on it.

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
