We are finally emerging from winter and despite the calendar claiming it is already spring, it hasn't been until this past week that we are finally feeling spring. My neighbors crocuses are up and the irises are poking through the dirt.
This means a whole new opportunity for learning. Montessori from the Start: the child at home from birth to age three recommends a daily walk from the time your child starts walking. "This walk should be a meandering one, one that follows the child's mission, not the adult's." While I haven't loved this book, I love this idea.
We started our daily walk yesterday and the Wee One even got a little practice walking while holding my hands.
I hope that everyone takes time to put away the stoller, baby carrier, and wagon and let your children guide you. I think you will be surprised at how much fun you will have.
