Bringing Arts-Learning and Nature to my Children's Education

This morning I went outside to snip off the faded blooms from my patch of daisies
early enough that it wasn't yet too hot & humid. It must've rained in the wee hours because everything was dripping wet. Tidying up like this gave me a special gift - the chance to notice the tiny new daisies, just opening up and stretching toward the sun. The colors are so pure! The whitest whites, better than a brand new t-shirt, and the yellow so-yellow it looks like wet paint! I called my boys over to take a look, and my youngest noticed the small petal just forming, as if it was a bit late to the game. This is one of the things I love best about the slow pace of summer vacation, not only having the time to notice a beautiful, simple thing like a new daisy, but also having the time to share it with my boys.
