Here is an inventory of what is on our kitchen table this afternoon:

Playdough

2 year old ski pass

Cars from Christmas

Candle with holder

Chestnuts from a walk to school in October

2 paper snow boots for music class

Lego

Healing Prayer book

Emotion cards: Today’s word was “Chipper”

Clay

“People” have told me that when you have kids around, you have to let things go!

I think I am going to start with the kitchen table.  It is so freeing to have everyone doing what they love around the kitchen table.  Over the course of the day, the table becomes a mound of differing activities: building, creating, playing, reading, writing, and sometimes eating.

Now if only there was a way to not have to clean it off every time we eat!
