โ€œThe secret of good teaching is to regard the childโ€™s intelligence as a fertile field in which seeds may be sown to grow under the heart of flaming imagination.โ€ Maria Montessori
Yesterday we invited some friends over to explore with some homemade paint (and regular paint) ๐ŸŽจ and various textures and objects. Some friends made potato stamps or Nature paint brushes while others brought their leaf, flower and pinecone collections ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŒธ. I laid out cardboard across the lawn, set up a watercolor station, and laid out all the materials for children to freely choose and explore. It was really interesting and fun to watch each childโ€™s particular interest.
For a time, while many of the moms chatted on blankets under the trees, I hung by the materials and just observed...
One of things I have really taken on and love doing that I learned from my great mentor, Dr Montessori, is to observe the child ๐Ÿค“.
I learn so much doing this, about my own children, and just children in general. Even with the busyness of life, I make it a goal to spend at least one hour or even one day focused on the observation of my children. Montessori said this was the role of the teacher, so she can prepare an appropriate environment for the child. And it has made all the difference for our family๐Ÿ˜.

Itโ€™s starting to get warm in the valley. #dressappropriately #freerangeparenting #andersonbean

Muddy boys, muddy boys. Oh such muddy boys ๐Ÿ˜
Okay yโ€™all-help. Our backyard/sideyard is pretty great. But if youโ€™ve ever watched my stories youโ€™ve seen the hill of dirt...and thatโ€™s what they love to cling ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‚
Which leads to a LOT of dirt.
Now Iโ€™m not a crazy clean mama. Iโ€™m just not. But I donโ€™t like dirt on my floors and this is the kind of dusty dirt that sinks into clothes and comes off. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ
Iโ€™ve been making them change when they come inside but that makes a lot of laundry. Any suggestions? Iโ€™m going to try an โ€œinside outfitโ€ and out doors one tomorrow...but Iโ€™m open to anything. ๐Ÿ˜…
Minus โ€œdonโ€™t let them get dirty.โ€ I love the dirty summer time faces ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

Had to steal this from @jaimie.murdock to share with the world. Anything Javi does atypically won't be the result of drinking sugar, receiving vaccines, or #freerangeparenting - it can all be traced back to #pregnantwithpug . #byersmurdocknewlyweds

Today is the last day of school for my kids, where did the time go? I still haven't finished editing their back to school photos from last fall ๐Ÿ˜‚ (I'm notorious for taking forever to edit my own kids photo!!) Now I have to figure out what to do with them all summer?! So I need to know, where is the best place to go hiking with kids in the Denver or Boulder area? I'm thinking no more than an hour drive and an easy hike? Help a mama out! ๐Ÿ’™Jennifer

Strawberries started to come in but with this little guy we stand no chance. He sat down by the row and said "I will watch them get ready" ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ I guess we have strawberry patrol.

These two<< I love coming home to this.
It's amazing to see them interact with eachother as siblings would. Sometimes they love each other and play well together and sometimes no one is happy.

These two enjoyed their last day at Tamahere Playcentre today.
It's not the end of our Playcentre journey, we're moving to another centre to spend time with an integral part of my village who has recently moved out of Hamilton.
So, Morrinsville here we come. Looking forward to making plenty more Playcentre memories.
And actually making it to meetings as they're held on session and not at 7:30pm.

Glorious pink campion is everywhere now at Old Barn Books. Billowing out of the hedgerows, peeking over gates, and fussing outside the library door... doesnโ€™t it look just like Doraโ€™s hair.
