|Creepy Teletubbies sun baby!|
So this summer, Rowan and I are doing lots of beach time (the ocean has lots to teach), lake time (watching how the animals interact and live with one another is fascinating), park time, and creek time. I got him fun buckets and shovels to build castles and whatever else strikes his fancy.
We will be visiting farmer's markets and learning about food and where it comes from (which is my preamble to one day having a sustainable plot of our own- sigh). We will be feeling the sun on our skin and seeing all the birds and learning their names. Rowan will be learning to ask before ripping off a leaf or flower (he sees something shiny or pretty and he grabs it- not exactly the most polite baby in the world!) and leaving an offering when the answer is yes. Yesterday, mama had to leave a spit offering when he violently and suddenly ripped off a flower that did not consent.
|Temescal Farmer's Market is awesome and has live music |
and a creek to play in!
What is your family doing this summer? Does it have a spiritual component?
*I said "kinda" because in our part of the world, as with so any others, the weather here has been unseasonable and weird. The other day, I heard a commercial on the radio complain, "The saying is supposed to be April showers bring May flowers, NOT June showers ruin your weekend!" I concur. I know that it is human malfeasance that has disrupted much of our weather, so complaining won't fix the actual problem...
