I can’t tell you how much the littles and I are enjoying Sonlight’s Core 4/5. It truly has been the perfect speed for my combination of ages and stages. Stories and topics ranging from simple to complex, hands-on ideas, engaging characters to fall in love with– it’s all there. I was among the biggest scoffers when Sonlight announced programs for the younger set years ago, so this is me eating crow right now when I say that if you have kids in this target age, check it out. It may be a good fit for you, too.
But it is winter. And in the PNW, winter is grey, and long, and dull, and marked by a terrible inability to just go outside already. Now, left to my own devices, I would weather the long, wet dark quite well. I have a library card, a tea drawer, a yarn stash, and access to ravelry. What more could a girl want? If she’s the mother of children wiggly in both brain and body, a lot.
