Welcome to our Dragonfly Cove Care Home and our Nook and a Book reading corner. This blog is a living, growing record of our kiddos during this beautiful time in our lives together. This kind of blogging is as personal and intimate as writing a journal or diary. Memories and experiences are the greatest gifts we can bestow on our children. Here we document and share the unique experiences, ideas and inspirations enriching our lives and the children in our care. You will see various pictures of our kiddos learning through play and inquiry in every day life

A couple of ideas and quotes related to our blog and growth...

"Life isn't about finding yourself; It's about creating yourself."
"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass; it's learning to dance in the rain"

My passion and love of learning stems from a belief that learning is a life-long process. We strive to be open and adaptable to the many changes and challenges of everyday life. I try to model continued learning as the children see me reading, studying and implementing new, creative adaptations and theory to our home indoor and outdoor environments and lives. By giving them these roots, my hope is they will also follow a path of inquiry and know as students of life, they will always be learning and growing

Here is an excerpt from "How Does Learning Happen? Ontario’s Pedagogy for the Early Years" which directly pertains to our blog here...

"a means of sharing perspectives with parents and colleagues. When families and others are invited to contribute to the documentation and share their own interpretations, it can provide even more insights that children, educators, and families can return to, reflect on, and remember in order to extend learning."

We love reading your thoughts and comments! Thanks so much for embarking on this special, memorable journey with us... lots of love

Changing Seasons♥

 School is in full swing and the kids are enjoying riding the bus from our country home.  We were worried;)  Fall was beautiful.... I say was because all the leaves have fallen now and there is often a crispness in the air that tells you snow is coming.  Here are a couple of shots of our back yard when fall was in bloom:)
 This is a picture of my little family on our front steps♥  We're expecting and in the spring we won't fit on the steps for a photo like this... I could get our youngest to hold the new baby for the picture... if he'll stay still:D  Easter photo planning perhaps;)
 We've started decorating for the holiday season and are still counting our blessings with that Thanksgiving feeling still in our hearts.  Here we see a couple of pictures of our mantel being decorated.
 Now that we've decorated the tree and have hung the stockings by the chimney with care... it's time to take more photos and continue to count our blessings... my favourite holiday season has begun and we are truly blessed♥
