Spring in Odenwald...

I honestly will not be sad if I never experience another winter for the rest of my life. Here in Wald-Michelbach, there was snow on the ground when I got back from Istanbul in October and it was there pretty much non-stop until I returned home from Spring Break last week. A solid six months of winter. Long, cold, depressing winter. So, naturally, it is with great excitement that I can finally say...

In honor of the warm weather, I took the dragons to play in the creek nearby. I like doing this with them because I LOVED playing in the creek behind my house when I was their age. And today, as I was sitting there trying to make sure none of them drowned, I realized how beneficial the Montessori School idea is. I do not agree with it fully and I do think its missing some important educational aspects, but I love that the kids have the luxury of enjoying being kids in a world that constantly encourages busyness and growing up too fast. 



And I can't resist sharing this picture that basically sums up the past nine months of my life...dragons and trains!
