gratitude week :: day 2

november 13, 2012
i am feeling grateful.

:: my kiddos spend one day each week in the woods, for five hours, with two incredibly knowledgeable teachers…they learn how to whittle, how to build shelters, how to brew tea from the roots of sassafras trees…besides being grateful for this learning environment, i love to pick them up at day’s end and see the joy on their faces, hear the enthusiasm in their voices as they recount their adventures, see the dirt ground into their clothing

:: this pup {kona} has been with us for about a month and a half now…she elicits innumerable smiles and giggles…she provides the kids a chance to learn new responsibilities and has taught us all about a new kind of love

:: kale…the bright green, the curly edges

:: feeling a definite moment of presence.awareness.openness…knowing that where i am is so very right for me…liking this

  1. Oh the puppy is too sweet.

    I wanted to let you know I nominated your blog for a Liebster Blog Award in my post today if you would like to go take a peak.

  2. This week is full on, but I am glad I took a moment to reflect with your gratitude week. Rushing to get to post office before it closed I threw the camera in the bag as I left the house and I caught this on the way home.

    Falling for that gorgeous puppy of yours, big time. Enjoy the rest of your week Michelle x

  3. Oh Kuna you are a lovely pet :) I remember learning all about trees at the age of 10 and still remember the lessons. I am thankful for Frodo who makes me smile everyday :)

  4. Yesterday afternoon, after a full day of Classical Conversations (my home school co-op), I sat on the playground with a gaggle of children, all ages, played my guitar, and we all sang silly songs. (“Hey Little Ant,” “Aiken Drum,” and all the verses to “Itzy, Bitzy Spider.”). For a brief wrinkle in time, even the emerging teenagers left off their normal brooding and clapped and jumped and sang, as if no one was watching. I’m thankful for days that we can laugh out loud like little children, with no one watching to criticize or condemn.
