I have heard people talking about making time for tea and poetry at their house and I thought that we would give it a try. So, I gathered several poetry books and bought a generously sized basket to hold them all. Then, I thought that I would take things one step further and have us bake a treat each Wednesday (since baking is another thing that I regret not doing more of).
We seem to be off to a good start and I hope that this will soon become ingrained as a Wednesday routine. Both my son and daughter enjoy the baking process and they are getting quite good at running our stand mixer. My son will listen to a few poems while eating, but then skips off to go play with something else while my daughter begs for more poems. Thus far, our time has been delightful.
