Today we slowed down our gears a little to talk about ” who’s birthday is it anyway ? ”
Yesterday McKayla’s grandmother brought me in two bags of buttons that were her mothers. Today, I poured them on the table for the kids to explore. Again, I am always entertained by the fact that without being told , they start sorting . There was a lot of rich language like shiny , round, and interesting. We found some really different ones that looked like an orange. They really liked the ones that were two buttons connected by a chain. As I played with them I remembered all the days I used to play with my moms buttons. They are now in a jar in my kitchen window for me to enjoy each day. Buttons can tell so much about a families past. Thanks Charlotte for enriching our day.
