Photos from this week....



~Yoga~ Stretching like starfish....















Chasing bubbles....












Exploring a new work...





It's been a long week and it's only Wednesday night. Yesterday my town experienced some flooding due to heavy rain. Our driveway was washed away and there was left a four foot drop from the pavement. It has been repaired since, thank Goodness! School was closed due to the flooding and many streets were also closed. I stayed home (obviously we couldn't GO anywhere) but I was sick, so I stayed in bed.

Today it was back to school, business as usual. Busy toddlers exploring their world.
The children are getting excited about Spring and flowers and MUDD! The playground has been a ton o' fun since the rain came....she types with a smile and a wink. These photos are from Monday and today. They LOVE Yoga! And I am so very happy they do. There have been some restless bodies lately, as you know, "Spring Fever" is most likely the cause. Although from this tired teacher's point of view there is nothing more exasperating than one toddler readying the troops with a call like, "Come on everybody, let's RUN!" INSIDE! Someone ALWAYS gets knocked down or falls and tears follow. Running inside is not okay. Today's response: "But Miss Jennifer, we can't run outside because of the MUD!" She has a point...a toddler needs to RUN.

In other news...
Taller Than Me shined during a recent school music concert and Middle Man got the part of the Tin Man in our local children's theater's production of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz! And Little One is still coughing but getting better each day.
His favorite phrase: "Will you play with me?"
PEACE to all of you~I've gotta go play.

Love the yoga! How cool is that! We are about to start some simple stretch stuff with Tilly - well really I am about to re-embark back to regular (semi-regular) yoga since I have had her, and Im hoping she might wanna get on board too. Thanks for the beautiful pics.

Mud - I love it (but a bugger to get on the carpet!)

Loved seeing you doing Yoga with your Toddlers...in our primary and toddler classrooms we practice our poses every day and meditate with our singing bowls to bring peace into our hearts. Never underestimate the power and capabilities of a toddler!
Namaste.

Thanks for the post! I am stru-ga-ling! with my toddler right now-- primary training really doesn't do much to help you figure out these little buggars. Maybe yoga will be good for both of our souls.

Just a thought - how old are toddlers generally when starting out in yoga. Wondering when I should aim for a bit more of a regular thingo. I know I know - follow the child...LOL, but is there an age you have found them most receptive?
