This was Mr. Intensity's afternoon activity yesterday. He had a wooden mallet to bam the Montessori rods in the ground, along with a few wooden stakes and a sword from the Czech Republic. Not sure we've used the Montessori rods correctly in a while. :) He also smashed several acorns with the mallet. Love this kind of independent play.
Secondly, our church service yesterday was very meaningful. The focus was on the Persecuted Church as well as orphans. One way to help the little man stay engaged was to write out a few words and let him copy. Edith Schaeffer did a masterful job with her children in church services - she drew pictures that correlated with the sermon topic. More details in her book, The Hidden Art of Homemaking.
Twist on a Favorite
While Hubby was in Rwanda a friend invited me and Mr. Intensity for dinner.
She made chicken salad and added shredded cheese. She put a dill pickle slice on top of the salad in a bun with then wrapped the whole thing with foil and baked in the oven till heated through.
It was super yummy.
We had it for dinner last night - Hubby loved it, too.
