Day 12: Exploring
Visiting with family, spent most of the day shopping till we dropped. Lots of cart-riding, a little crankiness, a good amount of tired-ness.
But after all that, took time to slow it down for the littles…
Keeping it simple: explore. Pause for a moment to take a kid’s-eye-view of the world. What is this? What does it do? How does it work? Why is it here? What will happen next?
Today we were fascinated by flowers poking up in the warmer spring weather. Why don’t these things look like the rest of the grass? Who planted them? What are they? What will they look like? Will birds eat them? What color will they be? Will they look different tomorrow?
Question. Answer. Ask, don’t tell. Explore and enjoy.
