Today Kaira was excitedly anticipating our end-of-unit activities which will wrap up 8 weeks of Tapestry of Grace.
She chattered eagerly about making parkin, cornhusk dolls, a talking feather, maple sugar candy, hardtack, and a host of other things we’ve been planning. Oddly, Kendra didn’t seem to share her enthusiasm. With an Eyore-look she said, “I don’t want to get to the end of the unit. It will be all gone! I like reading so many books and learning the people.”
Her mood soon brightened. Kaira–motioning to the next thick binder up on the shelf–reassured her, “After this unit we get to do the next unit! And after that another! We just get richer and richer!”
