blog blues

I am having trouble getting photos uploaded .
Very sad as I have so many great ones to share from the past few eventful weeks.
I am feeling very blog unhappy.
Oh well..seasons.

Truth is I am walking a very thin line.I am desperately lacking in sleep & finding it hard to keep all the plates spinning.I have to let some drop  but not the real important ones.

We are going to live simply over the next few weeks...
exploring local parks( with yummies in hand of course) 
nature collecting & drawing our finds in sketchbooks
reading-the baskets are all full of our topic of interest-middle ages/birds/nature/letter of the week/space/etc
lots of hands on play ie building,creating,story making
making books-8y0b has put together a bunch of books he is in the process of illustrating for baby sister
drawing using different mediums-even 'mumma's special pencils'
reading-our current chapter books,bedtime books,poetry at teatime & anything else that makes it's way in to their hands
and of course mediating because this is what I spend a fair bit of time doing at the moment

Learning-they do it without even realising. Learning to read,to investigate, to get along & I'm learning along with them.
So here's to keeping it simple!!

psalm 22:30-31

Future generations will also serve him
our children will hear about the wonders of the lord
his righteous acts will be told to those yet unborn.
they will hear about everything he has done.

a necessary outing

if this isn't working 
try this

a tragedy in the life of a four year old

                                                                  the death of a friend-

                                                            the killer-
