Sky’s the Limit

Skys the Limit (1)

Today, I took some time with Veronika just to pause and look at…the sky! Yup, that’s it. With all the busy activities we do, sometimes we forget to stop and just look.

So we headed to the park and lay down on a blanket. Now she had a perfect view… up!

We talked about everything we could see up. The leaves on the branches of the trees, the birds and butterflies going by, the puffy clouds. And of course the blue sky.

If it’s a bit bright as you head out for this activity, don’t forget the sunglasses!

We even spotted an airplane!

I made up song verses for all the things she could see, choosing a favorite tune (Wheels on the Bus), but instead we sang: “The birds in the sky go tweet tweet tweet” etc. This brought a big smile to her face.

She was proud making the connection between the butterflies fluttering past and the one on her water bottle!

Mostly, I tried to just lie still, and enjoy the peaceful moment. She seemed to appreciate the pause, too.
