Sunday is a day when our pace slows, and I find myself taking stock of both the week ahead and the week that’s passed. Here’s what the view is like for our family this Sunday:
- I rearranged and rotated Jasper’s shelves this week. A basket of farm animals, a tractor, a basic ring stacker and a wooden farm animal puzzle: out. A basket of forest animals, an owl ring stacker & wooden woodland animal puzzle: in. I love all the fresh energy and interest Jasper shows after his shelves have been changed out.
- I’m also working on an easy DIY project: matching cards for the Schleich forest animals, which I hope to post about later this week.
- We are very much looking forward to a trip to the local sugar bush with friends tomorrow morning. One of the wonderful things about living life at a child’s pace is having a deeper engagement with the seasons, and maple syrup season is a wonderful promise of spring.
- Finally, the scene above: my journal/agenda/sketchbook/grocery list keeper. This week’s pages included a recipe for crepes, some light sketching by Jasper, and a wonderful, worth-remembering list of everything that makes the Montessori method so magical, quoted from Deb at Sixtine et Victoire in this great interview at How We Montessori.

I am really touched. It is always a nice feeling to inspire someone in some ways…My husband loves crepes and he thinks I should be making them weekly. He is Canadian so I expect pancakes and I guess I am French so I should be making crepes more often! hehe Have you tried them yet? Have a lovely week!
Your words were one of the best descriptions of what Montessori has to offer (and I’m sure you also often find yourselves trying to explain it to others) — I had to remember it!
The crepes recipe I used was Julia Rothman’s recipe on Design Sponge. And they were wonderful!
Hope you and your loves have a lovely week as well. Thanks for stopping by.
