I was figuring the only place we’d see snow for the rest of the winter would be on our bulletin board, but we were pleasantly surprised with a light dusting this morning.
It disappeared too quickly to do anything fun – but it reminded me that I wanted to post a picture of that snowy bulletin board:
Umm – this photo WAS taken in January, hence the calendar. Honestly.
The board has been displaced by this amazing batik – which has been waiting patiently to be put up in Esmé’s room since our return from Mozambique.
This thing is huge – the photo doesn’t quite do it justice. It’s longer than the length of the bed. And I love it!
Back to the snowy bulletin board. I loved having a spot to stick our memory verse, calendar, and whatever songs etc we might be working on, as well as display a little of her artwork. Definitely a significant learning space. I seriously need to find a new spot for it – it keeps getting knocked over in its precarious lean-to transition camp across from the bathroom… We are all about interior planning and design at our tiny house, if you know what I mean.
Here’s Esmé painting snow dots for the backdrop:
And we both practiced cutting out snowflakes from coffee filters. Esmé was very sad to see these stapled up, since she wanted to hug and baby them a little longer:
And I love these paper chain snowmen! Esmé gave each and every one of them a cheery smile after I cut them out for her…
