I celebrate each Saturday with Ruth Ayres at Discover Play Build - It's a close community that celebrates together. Come join us! Tweet at #CelebrateLu
Ruth often writes about story and its value. Today, I celebrate story as I meandered through my week, reading and writing, spending time noticing on my morning walks. I spent time with my granddaughters, watching them build their own "libraries of memories, and observed a new teacher's lesson as he began his journey of teaching.
|I saw this first leaf turning one morning. Some time ago I read an article about a workshop where the leader asked the participants to write their memories of trees. You can access this article here at NCTE. Scroll down to Page 3. When I posted a poem yesterday for Poetry Friday about a tree that a grandfather called "mine", so many commenters spoke of a tree in their childhoods. Stories about trees are worth celebrating.|
|On one walk, I liked the shadows, but imagined this one chair placed in a sunny spot was going to be a warm place to enjoy a winter morning to come.|
|My school has a labyrinth. I pick up Ingrid each Friday, and when there is time, she takes advantage of things she cannot do while in school, like running the labyrinth, arms out, in and out, joyful. Stories of play are ones to celebrate.|
|I found new books about fall and pumpkins for the girls, and they let me take a picture so I could share with the author. I celebrate authors who work hard to bring stories to us to love.|
I hope you have stories in your life to share and celebrate all through your days!
