This is still a collaboration work in progress… I made the frame out of an old wire coat hanger and black tape. The fringes are made from “iron beads”. Each fringe has a different theme and some are made by friends and family or all ages 🙂 It even has some glow in the dark areas!
Here’s our home schooling calendar sticker legend – many ideas inspired by family, friends and the Internet! Going to try and do the core curriculum ones on every weekday, with days off on weekends / holidays.
When I was walking with Dan to school the other day, we were talking about him cycling home on his own and I said, “Be careful, keep looking around for cars and people – Observation – that’s the most important thing!”
Dan said, “No it’s not!” I said, “Yes it is – what’s more important than observation?”
While staying with my family in the UK this summer, I was rather taken with this translation of the Upanishads by Shree Purohit Swami and W. B. Yeats which I found on my stepdad’s book shelf. Especially the first few lines:
That is perfect. This is perfect. Perfect comes from perfect. Take perfect from perfect, the remainder is perfect.
May peace and peace and peace be everywhere.
Sometimes I find it hard to see perfection in everything, but never hard to see in my son Dan!
