Yesterday was a dark rainy day. No one was interested in going outside once the rain had set in but there was still so much energy in our tiny house there was no question that it needed to be channeled. I have been pouring over Montessori catalogs lately as I try to wrap my head around homeschooling for real, which is different than the homeschooling for pretend that I have been doing up until now. One of the things I came across in the Michael Olaf catalog (link above) that I really liked was the balance beam. I have always loved that type of focused attention on the body and where it is in space. With children, it is especially amazing to be able to watch that skill set unfold and develop right in front of you.

Then after all of that, there is the added challenge of trying to stay balanced while your papa is picking up the other end.
