  • Day 2: The Journey
-
The next morning, parents return to school for a morning of exploration and engagement. They now spend time in each environment, but they are allowed and encouraged to touch and interact with the materials. After a night of reflection, parents are able to see the thoughtfulness and power of Montessori's vision for the optimal development of each child at each stage. Parents – like their children – may choose which materials interest them. They also are offered lessons by the teachers in each classroom.
-
Parents' reactions to the Silent Journey are usually ones of wonder, pleasure, awe, understanding and respect for the Montessori approach. They can see the logic and connections of activities across each environment and the progression of concepts, how each level builds and extends ideas to the next developmental stage.
It is a wonderful and enlightening experience for all!

  • We thank all our WMA parents that were able to attend Journey + Discovery Day.  Pictures above are from the first evening of their silent journey. -
What is Journey + Discovery?
Parents get to experience what it is like to be their own child at school. This is an extremely important and educational experience, especially for parents who are in the process of learning about Montessori for the first time through their child's enrollment at Willow Montessori Academy. This unique experience of Montessori is called "Silent” Journey + Discovery and it is practiced in many Montessori schools throughout the world.
-
What Happens During “silent” Journey + Discovery?
Parents sign up for this special experience. They come to school for an hour on Friday evening after the children have left the classrooms and – in complete silence – they walk through each of the school's classrooms or "environments" in sequential order. This means that they start in the Nido which is the room where babies are cared for, through the Toddler Community and then into the Primary Community. As they move through each room, the parents silently absorb information about the materials and activities on offer – but they do not speak or touch anything at this stage.

I think one of the most important lessons in life I got is that you have to be as independent as possible.  You should always be sure that if something happens with a person you depends on, you will be fine. We are our own best "guards" "protectors" and "providers". No one can do it better for you than you. Try to think - do I depend on someone else? If it is so, would I be fine if something happens with this person, would I be able to move on by myself? If the answer is no, then you probably should do something about it.  I'm so sad that I didn't really think about it earlier but  I'm also thankful that I understood it now and not  10-15 years later. We have to remember that  the only person who will always be there for you is YOU. If you love someone who depends on you in any way, the best thing you should do for them is to help  to become independent from you by supporting and encouraging them. And if your parent/partner ever says that you don't have to work too hard, because you will always have their help and their back, it's surely very nice of them, but don't fall for it, okay? It will make you weak. And no one enjoys being weak, right?  Do the opposite! Go out, find a job, find your place, find a way to prove everyone that you most likely would never need their help. In fact you can offer your help to others.

  • for the new moon in Pisces today we honor the moon as it hides in darkness, holding space for our own shadow work. it lies in wait for the opportunity to emerge, gently illuminated by the sliver of the waxing moon, a charged space for us to direct our dreams and intentions. The Moon is one of the tarot cards for Pisces season and it invites us to listen and reflect. this meditation was created for rest and reception; you can listen to the full version by signing up for my site TAKING UP SPACE! you can become a member for as little as $6 a month. link in bio to sign up! ✨

  • 🐵So we are at Sunday evening once again and have another week ahead of us! 💐
-
I love this photo of toddler ordering his numbers. It was an activity he came across all by himself and he started ordering even without my input.
-
He came across a stack of mini boxes which I made a while ago. Within each is a different sort of activity. These numbers were made from a thick stick I found in our garden in the summer whilst we were sorting and redesigning it. I asked hubby to make slices from it and then wrote these numbers on. I sealed with some varnish and amazingly they seem to still be in great condition.
-
The pieces are very small so I make sure to play with these with only toddler. Baby is still shoving everything in his mouth and I'm too paranoid that he might do the same with these. But I'm sure, when he is old enough, he will enjoy playing with these too.
-
I think what I'm trying to say is that activities you set up for children to play with, don't have to be fancy or really shiny or colourful but interesting and sometimes simple works best. Toddler enjoyed taking these out of the box, ordering them, saying the numbers out loud and putting them away again. Simple. And something he can do time and again!

  • This kid I tell ya...hard to keep him from getting bored. Always needing to upgrade his gadgets. 😳

Right now he is connecting sensor wires, and coding on his Piper computer to test out this process. He’s like a little mini engineer👨‍💻 I like that he takes initiative in these activities and reads the instructions all while singing 🎤 🎶 ~ with trial and error and works his mind. 🥰#miniengineers #keepthemlearning #keepthembusy #buildsconfidence #independence

  • On Friday I finally moved into my new apartment and I am starting to get it all organised and making it my own and honestly, I love it! ❤️⁠
⁠
I am so grateful to have had these last couple of weeks to explore London, to stay in my first hostel and work out where I wanted to live in the meantime. I'm also so grateful for the generosity of others who have let me stay with them the last couple of weeks. 🤗⁠
⁠
But now that I have a place I can call my own, I am so excited!! This is the first time i've moved out of my parents home and I wasn't sure how to feel. But I love this new independence. All I can say, is that this is exactly what I need to settle myself and start feeling at home here. 🏠⁠
⁠
What makes you feel at home in a new place? Is it moving in  like me? Landing a job? Making friends? I'd love to hear what makes you feel like you're home. 😍⁠

  • Country Of The Day: Kosovo/Kosovë/Косово
➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
Kosovo is a small area in the Balkans that has been disputed for a long time. Part of Serbia originally, Kosovo claimed its independence in 2008 after the last 2 countries of Yugoslavia split. Kosovo has been inhabited by Albanians for while, and the people of Albania have supported the independence of the country for that reason. However Serbia still believes it is apart of their country, and that is why there is no official border when you cross from Serbia to Kosovo.

  • I recently went on a work trip to California and had an amazing experience! But I’ll be honest before I left I was so nervous to be away from my boys (hubby and dog included). I thought for sure I would be in my hotel room sad and missing them since this was my first time away from all of them since having my son in 2018! 
And you know what... I did miss them! 
But I took advantage of the alone time and woke up both mornings to workout and then go for a walk by myself! 
I checked in and FaceTimed them to say good night before bed both nights! 
I was able to find balance and not feel guilty being away.

Sometimes we focus on the quantity of time we spend with people and forget that it’s truly about the QUALITY time! 
My goal for 2020 is to focus more on quality time with my family and not the quantity! More self care and balance for my husband and I so we can be better partners together and ultimately better parents to our boys!  #balanceleadersearch2020 #findyourbalance #balanceathletica @balanceathletica #coloradomom #wife #independence #selflove #selfcare #workingmom #travel #corporatelife #firewife #balance #progressnotperfection #goals #2020 #momlife #boymom

  • “Non-Stop” part 6 “James Madison wrote twenty-nine. Hamilton wrote the other fifty-one!” Hamilton is the kind of guy you would never want for a co-worker because he’s so industrious he makes everyone around him look lazy and slow. And stupid. No wonder his boss Nicholas Cruger put him in charge of the St. Croix operation of his international import/export company when he was just a teenager (the other, older employees must have been envious). “Defending the document to the public 
BURR:
No one will read it 
HAMILTON:
I disagree”
Lots of people have read them over the centuries and continue to read them. Their impact on the practical application of the tenets of the Constitution has been immeasurable. “BURR:
It’s full of contradictions 
HAMILTON:
So is independence
We have to start somewhere”
Hamilton admitted he wasn’t the biggest fan of the Constitution (remember, he liked his plan better), but it was far superior to the preceding supreme law, the Articles of the Confederation, which were weak af, so, yeah they really needed this Constitution to be ratified. New York was a particularly hard nut to crack when it came to ratifying it. The Constitution and its articles superseded all state laws. Many people preferred strong states’ governments and a weak central/federal government at the time. But Hamilton and the other federalists feared lack of a strong (“energetic”) central government would lead to disunion of the states and many little countries in the American continent which would then impose tariffs on each other and possibly even go to war with each other (in fact, things were already heading in that direction). In other words, another continent like Europe. Thus weakened, the states would be vulnerable to being conquered by foreign (European) powers and monarchies re-imposed upon each conquered state. So, in a way, Hamilton and the Federalists were ANTI-monarchists. Suck on that, anti-Federalists! Still, the Federalist Papers and Hamilton’s arguments as a member of the New York Ratifying Convention weren’t enough. He had to threaten to secede New York City from upstate New York (a personal wrench since his in-laws lived there). (contd in comments)

  • You don't need to sacrifice pieces of yourself in order to find a relationship. The right person won't ask you to shrink, to become less strange, to silence your voice when it comes to what you want and need, Anyone who demands differently is not the right fit. Plain and simple.

  • During the 1998-99 war in Kosovo, thousands of women and men were raped by Serbian police and the Yugoslav army during the war between Kosovo Albanian liberation fighters on the one side, and Serbia's Slobodan Milosevic's paramilitaries on the other.

Milosevic’s forces used rape as a tool of war -- their ultimate goal was to destroy a woman’s honor and identity. Their strategy worked.

To this day, though, these rape survivors are still stigmatized and shamed by society, and also by their families. This war isn't over for them. 
On the 12th anniversary of Kosovo’s independence, it is powerful to see that the new theme for this year’s Kosovo’s NEWBORN monument pays tribute to survivors of wartime sexual violence in Kosovo and all around the world. Testimonies from survivors are written on the letters. The typographic sculpture was created by Fisnik Ismaili and unveiled on February 17, 2008 when Kosovo declared independence from Serbia. Every year, right before anniversary of Kosovo’s independence, the monument is painted differently to represent a theme or struggle the country is going through and unveiled to the public on independence day. #prishtina #kosovo #newborn #independence #balkans #europe #monument #art #postwar #newborn12 #humanrights #endsexualviolence #photojournalism #everydayeasterneurope #ajeinpictures
