Every day we have quiet time. It's usually after lunch and lasts for about an hour. It's a time for everyone to be in a room by themselves with some toys or books to play with quietly. It's one of my favourite times of day. It's nice just to sit and recharge for the rest of the day.
Yesterday we tried out some quiet creative time. Everyone had to choose a creative project to work on. Nate and Emma-Lyn both chose to paint while Sean and I did some sketching, Marko was home yesterday and he did some writing. It was nice to change things up a bit and crank up the creative juices--the quietness seemed to vary but overall it was a great way to spend our time.
