We can attempt to teach the things that one might imagine the earth would teach us: silence, humility, holiness, connectedness, courtesy, beauty, celebration, giving, restoration, obligation and wildness.

Solstice Mail

Arriving on Friday just in time for the Solstice Alder's Godmama's package.

Wonderful books (from the thrift store).

A homemade friend.

And a learning tool for later (right now the rain gage makes a perfect pretend trumpet).


In a separate package from a used book seller was this book, I wanted to take it from the library in Denver but I didn't (I know I know). Since we are starting make Alder a real room of his own.

(The fabric behind it was a blanket given to me when I was born by a Chinese friend of my fathers).

Nice Solstice gifts! Elisabeth got a wooden boat for the tub :)

Elisabeth is going to move into her own room at some point too. Her room is just so small and the crib would take up 2/3's of it. I'd really like to wait until she's in a big bed because there is one built into the room, but I'm afraid that will be in a couple years! Will you be posting pics of his new space? I'd love to see what you come up with!

Happy Solstice!!
