Tuesday Teatime: A Summer Tea

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Dear Julie,

We have been enjoying teatime since the end of July. And although the facial expressions might belie the fact, teatime is one of the highlights of our week.

Each child chose a poem on Monday and kept it a secret until Tuesday afternoon. They bookmarked lots of other poems in an effort to keep the Chosen One from being discovered. All the extra bookmarks did cause a bit of confusion, but eventually everyone located their Chosen One. We were then treated to readings of “Yankee Doodle,” “The Birthday Child,” “My Shadow,” and “Roger the Dog.” We munched Scottish Shortbread and drank glasses of ice cold milk before running outside to play.

Thank you for encouraging us to explore the wonders of poetry in such an enjoyable way!

A Brave Mom
