I wanted to take a moment to share our calendar with you. I made it several years ago when the girls were very small. I found it really helped them to see so clearly how the weeks, months & seasons worked together.
“How long ’till my birthday mummy?”
“Well, we need a Bumble Bee, a tree & an apple.” (Months)
Or perhaps “Two more buttons!” (Weeks)
We always begin our ‘Year’ in September – a time of fresh starts as we begin our new school year, as the year turns slowly around, moving toward less light & more home-centred living.
In a couple of weeks, the wheel will be cleared and we shall begin afresh, starting with our September mushroom. (Not so) little hands will once again help me to mark the passing of time in a very tangible way, as we add our little wooden & felted pieces.
