“The only reason for time is so that everything doesn’t happen at once.” Albert Einstein

Having been too busy to even post anything here for the last week or so, I obviously haven’t had time to do all the things I yearn to do…

So, while I am up to my ears in 4 yr olds; observations and planning; trying to explain things like the ‘big bang’ to said 4 yr olds (that’s what you get for using a space theme for kindergarten activities); and a fair bit of wiping tears and washing knee and elbow grazes, my creative endeavours have been directed towards making milk carton rocket ship proto-types and performing expressive story reading.  While I certainly do not discount these particular creative pursuits (they really are a lot of fun) here is the list of the more grown up things that I wish I had time to make right now…
