talk about it more

a virtual baby book

When she was two, Fiona regularly said "Talk about it more!" to express her desire to know more about whatever we were discussing.

First day of school




Today is our "official" first day of kindergarten, though I really think kids learn things every single day in innumerable, "unofficial" and wonderful ways. After lengthy discussion with Fiona's therapist, we've opted for a more traditional schooling method than we'd originally planned for her due to her anxiety. I was sad and stressed about that for quite some time, being such a John Holt fan. But I think we've reached a happy medium that will work for all of us, and that will help her make a comfortable segue into some traditional school at some point in the future. For now, though, viva la home school!

Looks wonderful! Robert and I are thinking about writing stories based on the chutes and ladders characters and the situations in which they find themselves.
