Exciting news for Living Education Lessons! First, there is now open registration for a new Season 2 that begins mid-October. I always like to begin new studies in unison with my children's new studies. It's an autumn thing. Second, the LEL community has grown and I am excited to share a new website for members. It will be a quiet place on the web where we can concentrate and encourage one another without the distractions and noise so often found on social media. It will be ready in time for this new class coming up. Visit the LEL page to read more or to sign up for the email notice list.
Also, I presented a new pin design with a little talk on the history of the original P.U.S. badges this past weekend at the Delightful Living Seminar in Menahaga, MN. This one doesn't have "Living Education Retreat" on it and is smaller. These pins will be available for purchase soon and I will certainly let you know. Here's a peek:
Finally, on October 1st and 2nd, I will be at the Weekend of Living Ideas in Okoboji, Iowa. The trees should be gorgeous! This is a small, quiet gathering with big ideas and inspiration. I will be presenting 4 sessions, including a new talk on habits, Getting Rid of Weeds and Fostering Flowers: The Vital Role of Habits. Sign up soon if it works for you to join me!
Okay, so back to this sweet book I wanted to share with you*. "It's my job with a picture book to slow children down, " said Shirley Hughes in this article. I love that. I have a small collection of her picture books.(Every child should read Dogger.) While I was at Loganberry Books last month, this title tumbled into my hands and didn't leave - Year Round Things to Do.
For each month of the year, there is a lovely title page with a poem and then:
- Out of Doors (games)
- Indoors (games and crafts)
I hope your new school year is flowing along nicely.
*Year Round Things to Do was first published in 1966 as Something to Do. My copy follows the 1975 printing. While not compiled by Shirley, she did the illustrations in 1966.
