wreath of flowers


Last weekend, while Daddy had a long day of rehearsals and work, I took the children to a local Waldorf school May faire. We had a wonderful time crawling through a castle maze which had been constructed with dozens of refrigerator boxes -- complete with turrets, dead ends, and secret passages; enjoying an all-organic lunch with compostable plates, cups, and flatware; dancing around a May pole; and weaving this crown of flowers. I was pretty annoyed with myself for most of the day because I forgot the camera (cardinal sin, I know), but the flower wreath is really the best part, so here are a few pictures of it. ;)

And one more from that afternoon, blurry and all, of my two wee ones who are beginning to interact more and more like friends. It just makes my heart skip to see their relationship -- their play, their companionable ease together, even their bickering. I'm so happy to just be their mama; to quietly observe them. Together.
