Art at Johnny's
5 April 12
Drawing, painting, playing in the garden. These are highly desirable activities for our older girls, and we’re enjoying a period of creativity under the watchful eye of Johnny.
Our girls are excited to be back visiting Johnny whom they discovered last year is “the most playful” of all the grown-ups they know. We’ve loved catching up with Johnny and Nathan and hearing about what has happened at La Hacienda in our absence.
Claire is currently sharing the house with Johnny. It’s interesting to see how a woman’s touch has changed the place, and we hear of how she has inspired Johnny to make some changes to his life.
When our girls enter the house in the morning, their expectations of Johnny aren’t disappointed. Johnny’s been lining up crafts for the girls to do and even brought out some of the pictures they did last year so they could see how their drawing styles have matured!
Late in the afternoon, the girls start playing independently — each learning so much as they pursue their interests. This is the beauty of unschooling.
It’s always special to be in Johnny’s company, and we’re enjoying getting to know Claire too. We’re thankful for their warm welcome and acceptance of our family!
