A new Instagram name

Hello Bunny Corner blog readers! Millie and I have a new name on Instagram- it is now "Little Bird Learning". What's that you say? You didn't know we have an IG account? If you're viewing this on mobile you'll have to scroll down to the bottom and click "web view" to change the format. Then you can see our Instagram feed on the right side of the blog. I've been making great connections with some other lovely Waldorf-y and like-minded families on IG, so I thought it was time for a change to keep The Bunny Corner a little more private. I'll still be posting family photos here, especially when Pumpkin Baby arrives!
I'm making a new business site for my preschool group, which will be called "Little Bird Learning" next year. I'm going to be launching that in the next couple of weeks and advertising to local families here in town. We're very excited!
So, rest assured that The Bunny Corner will live on for the grandparents and anyone else who may be out there checking in on our sweet bunny baby (soon to be double the bunny sweetness). I hope you'll also like to check in and see what we're learning about on the new site soon. Annie made me the beautiful logo that you see below :)
I hope some of that made sense! Thanks for reading!
 Here's one of the photos I took today of our playroom/classroom to put on the new website:

Easel work

I had the pleasure of observing the artist in her studio this afternoon (and holding the tape for her, and fetching different sized brushes, and adjusting the consistency of her glue... so more assisting than observing).
Piece #1 ~ beeswax crayon, gel crayon, tempera paint stick, glitter paint, printing tools, sequins and glue
Piece #2 ~ paint (she mixed the colors herself), colored tape and scissors, layers of tissue paper and glue, cray-pas 
The second one started because we mixed a light green and Millie said "Ooh a Spring green! I'm going to make grass. New paper, Mum!" She went back and forth between completely process-based creating (cutting and criss-crossing light and dark green tape and commenting on it, mixing an orange to match the color of her orange tape), and also representational/intentional work (grass, flowers, a tissue paper house, the sun). It's hard to believe we're entering into this new phase of making art! She's been drawing a lot of snowmen and sunshines, as well as a few animals. I'm planning to photocopy them soon to make a little compilation. I'll post it when it's finished.

[ps: as usual the colors on the blog photos are not nearly as pretty as the original photos- super frustrating!! If anyone knows an easy way to fix this please tell me!]

Patty Cake with Pumpkin Baby

Millie is pleased to announce that she is going to be a big sister soon! "Pumpkin Baby" is due to arrive at the end of June (at noon, according to Millie who is sitting right here and is big into rhyming words these days). We are planning to have a home birth with two amazing Midwives, who just so happen to work right next door to our favorite ice cream place, making well-visits that much more fun. Serendipity, no?
