I am reading ...
The books below are still on my bedside table and I am still getting through them BUT I have been doing a fair bit of online reading regarding the Reggio method. I am pretty sure this is already the way we educate:

You are your child's first teacher and Pocketful of Pinecones
I am hoping ...
and praying about our situation.
That we will see a light at the end of the tunnel!!
To do all the things on my day book lists and Hearts for Home and this day book list.

One of my favorite things ...
When one of the children just comes up and says I WILL LOVE YOU THE BESTEST ALWAYS MUMMY
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week...
To do a post on Erin's visit here. I am so overwhelmed by all the excitement of her being here and recapping it, I am afraid to start for fear of not presenting it properly.
Oh, dear the week has gone by already I MUST do this, perhaps in picture form without a heap of writing after all......" A picture tells a thousand words"
Picture thoughts I am sharing are of:
Books and reading with children and children reading
This is a big part of the education of our children.Blessings,
