Today is Cousins Day!


Princess and I will be talking about Cousins today.
Who are her cousins? Where do they live?
Ours are scattered all over from California,Long Island,Florida,Texas,
England,and New Zealand to down the shore and just about down our street.
Princess has a small photo album from when she was a baby (who loves baby?)
that we have pictures of many of her cousins in.We also have a section of our refrigerator
covered in them as well. We have recently started a family blog for just her and her little cousin in California
to "share" with each other on. A private,safe spot for them to post pictures and stories for each other and a way for the adults to "plan" our next visits all in one space. We are hoping they can make the trip in the Autumn this year as we have not seen them in person in far too long. The girls are two years and one day apart in age, and many people think they live near each other because Princess talks about her cousin like she just played with her.
They do speak on the phone together, and we adults have been shushed off the extension many times for our giggling over "how cute" their conversations are.Now, off to print out more pictures of cousins that are just waiting to be giggled over!Here is one of her with her Uncle and her cousin, P is in the back.

I always envied those people with tons of cousins. I only had two, neither of which I saw more than a handfull of times. My kids have two now, both very young, but I want to make sure they know them and see them often. I am so happy to be an aunt now that I don't know if I could stand not seeing my nephew only once in a while.

My homeschool buddies and I are all posting pics of our "home schools" as part of our idea sharing.

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
