Happy May Day everyone! We were supposed to do a lovely little celebration with treat baskets and sing-songs, but baby boy has been sick all week and we’re all just feeling a bit off-kilter. I have been working on orders (yes – that means that the shop has re-opened after a mini-hiatus), and sewing decorative pieces for our new house as well as for little babes that are arriving this summer. Exciting!
Homeschooling has been chugging along at its usual tempo and Alina has been working more and more independently. This week in particular has been filled with many books (of course) as well as sewing template projects, loads of math games and even a little astronomy. I am on the lookout for a reliable, updated solar system encyclopedia – what now qualifies as a proper planet has changed so much since we were little and at times I’d rather just consult a book and re-learn along with them. How have your weeks been so far? Please feel free to leave links to your blogs/weekly pics – I’d love to see them!
ps: Just a note – the wonderful ocean blue teether and tutti necklace you see pictured are from KOUKKU, Anna Koukku’s beautiful Etsy shop. Anna makes crochet+wooden teething rings, toys and necklaces that are natural and safe for babies. They come from Finland and are offered in a variety of hues. If you order now, you will receive a free tutti necklace with your purchase. I asked Anna to surprise me and she picked purple – my favourite colour! Thank-you so much again, Koukku!
