Where Did All the Acorns Go?
We went on a lovely walk today to look for acorns for a project. It was a beautiful day, with a light breeze and sunny skies--but no acorns! Usually, we are inundated with acorns but not this fall. Any theories? Too many squirrels? Global warming? Oak tree pests? Let me know. I love acorns.
I am a Montessori teacher who just completed my 10th year. I feel lucky to have found a calling that incorporates so many of my interests: music, theater, art, literature, and sports. I adore singing, tennis, and gardening. I have three fabulous children ranging in age from 14-21 (all Montessori-educated). Montessori opened up the world for me. I found out I love practical life and making beautiful things, which I have dubbed "Jane Austen Time."
