Tis the SeasonPosted: July 25, 2011 Filed under: Child Centered Activities 2 Comments
Yesterday a friend took us to a beautiful spot in Naples, Maine where we picked wild blueberries. We picked about 5 cups worth which will top our yogurts and cereals for a bit. My daughter who usually doesn’t sit still, was so quiet at times I had to keep checking on her. She loved the freedom of picking the berries and eating them. A beautiful day and a beautiful experience together.
Did you read “Blueberries for Sal” to her?
oh my gosh, i just clicked here to write this:
blueberries for sal, and blueberries for ella……
it is as if sal leapt off the pages and into ella’s world…
ella’s world. what a beautiful place to be, nestled among ferns, under bright and shining mr. sun, stuffing fistfuls of motherberry into that sweet sweet mouth…..
i love this. storybook life, indeed.
