We did some silly things in the wind – shooting archery! fly fishing! making mobiles! – and wished we hadn’t. Even if I’m not quite ready for them, our indoor activities felt less frustrating.
Wildling sensory science, lots of home experiments + builds, then a fairy house project that turned out amazing – three beautiful houses in our front garden bed!
Long before we had kids, George and I always found somewhere to BE in the mountains this time of year. It’s just rejuvenating to meander outside as the seasons shift. Now we pretend this fall tradition is “for Wilder’s birthday.”
I remember spending most of May Day giddy with delight, and I’ve passed this flower-delivery tradition on to my kids. Eight and 10 now, they’re likely on the cusp of giving it up, but I don’t want to see it go!
