A Focused Breath (1/22)
Today we spent the morning outside filling up our new dome area with mulch. Anything involving a shovel and wheelbarrow immediately grabs our sproutlets attention. Everyone wanted to help fill up the wheelbarrow outside, but the boys are the ones who's interest stayed with it the whole time. Joey and Rhys helped from start all the way to going inside. After snack we talked about different countries and how they have to work together to accomplish things. So we went out on the deck and pretended to be the leader of different countries. Some decided to work together and organize a dinner party, or in the case of Joey and Rhys, build a fort on our sensory table, while others went lone wolf and played by themselves. After ruling different countries we went inside for lunch.
For story time we reread a book maya brought. It is about dinosaurs, so we discussed why we don't see any dinosaurs walking around right now, and what it means to be extinct. Everyone understood the concept for the most part.
Waking up from nap was a bit hectic today. There was a lot going on so it took us a bit of time to settle in for snack. Once everyone was fed it was time for yoga. We had a fantastic yoga class today. They did a few yoga poses and some yoga games and the last thing they did was a relaxation and breathing exercise. It was amazing to watch. Our instructor had everyone lay flat and close there eyes and placed a smooth polished rock on their foreheads so as to concentrate on keeping it still. Jasper did an amazing job and so did everyone else, every child was absolutely peaceful for a few minutes while they focused on their breath.
Coming out of this relaxed state we calmly got shoes on and went outside for our pickup time.
