As I am sure you can tell by now, I am a big proponent of play and fun. I know for children, play is the work they do. I do not think things really change when we grow up. It is just that we have more "responsibilities". But playing is still really important to who we are as a person. It is how we get to know ourselves and grow. I just wanted to say that even though I have a lot of "children's" things on my blog like books, coloring pages, paper dolls. It is meant for us adults (although the kids can do them too). Anything I post would be something I would want to do even if I did not have these wonderful girls. And even though I homeschool I do not want this blog to be thought of as a blog to find fun things for my children. But to be thought of as a place to find the child in me !!
Why should we need extra time in which to enjoy ourselves? If we
expect to enjoy our life, we will have to learn to be joyful in all
of it, not just at stated intervals when we can get time or when we
have nothing else to do.
Laura Ingalls Wilder
Everybody makes their own fun. If you don't make it yourself, it ain't fun -- it's entertainment.
Be daring, be different, be impractical.Be anything that will assert imaginative vision against the play-it-safer, the creatures of the common-place, the slaves of the ordinary.
Sir Cecil Beaton
