Teaching moments in the midst of everyday life;


 
 
One must take "teaching moments" whenever they come along.  Sometimes they happen
at an unexpected time, like this one when it was time to set the table for a light family
luncheon.  Lesson #l...how to fold a napkin.




"You fold it in half", and then you crease it.




You place it to the left of each plate.  Wearing slippers always adds comfort to one's chores.



Lesson # 2...where to place the eating utensils?

Well, maybe there is a bit of confusion here(notice the one setting is reversed), but the instructor certainly does it with love and care.  His intentions are good and his little student is most willing:)




She is at least grasping the right concept.  We both praised here willingness to help.

Good morning! LOVE this! It seems as if in this rush rush world we live in learning such things just doesn't happen like when I was young...and it's sad. Your little helper is darling! Enjoy your day!

'Good job'...both to the sweeter helper and the instructor! It seems such a short while ago since you welcomed her birth...and now she is folding napkins and setting tables. Amazing.

I am thinking how blessed she is to have such loving and patient instructors and, in turn, how lucky you are to have such a willing and adorable helper.
A very sweet post today, Judy.

This sweet post was very "touching". What a blessing to watch her learn and grow with a little guidance . . .

So sweet, I love to see the little ones mimicking adults doing their chores. My grandchildren also love to set the table. You have trained her well ....and Grandpa!
