What a very sweet day. Looking back they have grown so very much. The unity that keeps on going is grand as well as the four year old behavior of choosing to play with just one person or having a friend you don’t want to share with while you play with another is growing. Right now that is happening in particular with Isabella. She and Ruby are just IMMERSED in their game of family: I’m( Isabella) the Mommy and she( Ruby) is the baby. They were glued together today with deep love and joy with being with one another. As a result the boys spent time on their own yet a lot of time together. Eli became Daddy at times, Kai continues to be immersed into being “Bad Guys” and Kuba continues to like to create, create and sing.
There was a great deal of asking for what they want when something happened that they didn’t want. You have raised such fine children because typically when asked “What do you want?”when they are discontent with another child, most often children will only respond with what they do not desire. Your children when they faced others doing things they didn’t like were very easily able to say what they would rather have such as: I would like to play with you with sticks. At the end of the day Kai was getting a bit rambunctious. All but Kuba was able to share with Kai the things they like doing with him. Kuba was very focused on something he wanted to share and just an answer in the midst of his desire to share a thought.
However, in the midst of all this our snack time was wrapped around celebrating Isabella. The children all gave her a wish and Kai went and picked some Poppies to give to her. She didn’t really want them so Kai just placed them near her in case she changed her mind.
She enjoyed the cupcakes that she brought and handed them out to everyone.
She also chose what direction we took on this day and where we ultimately ended up for the rest of the day.
Eli, Kuba and Kai when going up a big hil,l were airplanes and they wound up falling on the ground often and needing more fuel. I called upon the Eagle, Turkey vultures, Peragrin Falcons and Hummingbirds for their great Bird energy to fuel them up. The boys opened their mouths, I poured the fuel in, and then OFF they went up, up, up the hill!!!!!
We wound up going back to the place where we first saw those 15 turtles. This has been our third time here and they still are not back like the very first time. “Where are they?” we asked ourselves. “Is it the weather?” “Was the sky covered in clouds that first day or was it warmer???” and many other queries. The children ALL hopped on the big log boat and created many games from that. Isabella and Ruby came off because it was “time for baby to take a nap.” Isabella was very clear on that and Ruby was very obliging.
It was finally lunch though their tummies were less hungry due to the great snack. So they ate some yet were very eager to get back on the boat!!
I picked some wild edibles for Isabella to give to Ruby for their play, Linda helped the boat sail away with great rocking, the wild Turkeys were off in the distance, Crows making lot’s of noise and giving us big shows in the sky throughout the day and then, we had to go.
On the walk home Eli, Kai and I hid to see if Ruby, Isabella and Linda would see us. Kuba caught up with us and hid to. Indeed the three others walked right past us and then, SURPRISE!! with great giggles. Then I went to the port a potty on the way home. When I came out Linda was just standing there. Where wer ethe children I wondered. And then, then, there were giggles. And then, then, I looked, I listened and SURPRISE!!! out came five little treasures hiding ever so quietly in the bushes.
When in the bus they really, really wanted a picture drawn so, quickly I drew the many things that they were thankful for and they were content and happy that the other Tender Trackers will ask about their day!
