Letters of support from dear friends arrive in the mail surprising us, spurring us on.

In midsummer Queen Anne’s Lace line the side of the road on our daily walk. The white umbel blossom has a tiny red heart shaped floweret in the center.

I also appreciate how you have shown adaptatations to use if the regular Montessori equipment is not available. As a minimalist who lives in a very tiny house this is something I've been grappling with for yea…
