Where's Beren?

Beren and Momma play with a Waldorf school "play silk" while Papa makes photographs.  

While working at a Waldorf school for a year, I re-learned about color and art-making by observing the teacher in the classroom. Beren and I take out his chalk. I make big marks and say, "Blue is feeling sleepy and is staying in the corner to rest. Yellow would like to play. Yellow is very playful, and green would like to join. Red would like to rest, too." I pick up the white chalk last and say, "White is very excited and is running every direction!" 

Beren quietly makes his own marks. Lines, scribbles. It's relaxing for me.
