So this isn't the post I promised. The first day of school photos are coming, as are the childrens' book lists. I promise.
Tonight I wanted to post a few links to sites, posts and little things that I am loving right now. I have been doing more than my fair share of surfing the web at night and there are always so many wonderful little nuggets of gold floating in between all of the stuff on the internet.
This post from Are So Happy regarding her vision for what kindergarten will mean for their family this year. This really struck a chord with me because I have been getting several questions of late regarding homeschooling and children under the age of six. It seems that a lot of well-intentioned parents are fretting over which curriculum to choose for their four- and five-year-olds. I completely understand wrestling with this question but have really given into following my instincts on this topic. This post pretty much sums up my idea of what the early years at home should encompass and has really encouraged me in my decision to leave the kindergarten year void of academics.
These earrings. This is my dear friend's sister's etsy shop. I am in need of some new earrings. They are typically the only pieces of jewelry I wear on a daily basis and I never think to treat myself to a pair when I am out and about. These are just so beautiful and cheery and will certainly not break the bank. I'm thinking of getting two pairs... one regular pair and one dangle pair.
These pants. I am really hoping to carve out some time to sew up a bunch of these pants for our cloth-diapered baby. When your baby is wearing a cloth diaper and wool cover like ours is, it's really impractical to put any real baby clothing on the lower half of them. These days Luca is sporting his cloth diapers and these little things to keep his legs warm.
