Oh that God would give every mother a vision of the glory and splendor of the work that is given to her when a babe is place in her bosom to be nursed and trained! Could she have but one glimpse in to the future of that life as it reaches on into eternity; could she look into it's soul to see its possibilities; could she be made to understand her own personal responsibility for the training of this child, for the development of its life, and for its destiny,--she would see that in all God's world there is no other work so noble and so worthy of her best powers, and she would commit to no others hands the sacred and holy trust given to her." -JR Miller

Rice play


I know it's been a while, I do struggle to find the time and motivation to blog! 

Today I just wanted to share some pictures of our youngest enjoy in rice play! 


She has been doing a lot of pouring drinks from her cup into containers she shouldn't and rather than just think she's being naughty I chose to recognise a need she obviously has to pour materials - water play was a bit too messy for me to cope with downstairs so instead I poured some rice into a tray, added some cups, a spoon and an ice cube tray and let her loose to have some fun! 

Yes, the mess wasn't as much fun but easy enough to clean up with a vacuum :-)
