I never meant to blog so sporadically but this month has been filled with bursts of activity followed by periods of sheer exhaustion. It’s nothing really different from every other month of the year but just seems like I have a bit less energy and I can’t seem to figure out why.
While I’ve been keeping up with the sock knitting this month, Prithvi’s school has a project called Fall Foto Frenzy where students and their families are encouraged to take pictures and share what this season means to them.
At the end of the month each student will have a chance to display what their family discovered together and talk about their Fall memories. I think that this is a great project to help the kids learn and discover all they can about this planet with its perfect life supporting tilt away from the sun. What better season than now before all the leaves are shed and the silent beauty of yet another change comes to be.
Since this is a family project, we’ve used every opportunity to haul the camera out for picture-taking. Prithvi is done with his collage and I marvelled at all the work he’s done and the sweet touches he’s added to his piece. Without much parental prodding, his memories have been preserved and he’s learned so much along the way. It’s wrapped and ready to be taken to school tomorrow, but I’m sure that when he gets it back it will hang on his wall for a long time to come just to remember this vibrant earth.
