Six Things...

Melissa Wiley is the author of some add ons to the Little House series, the Charlotte Years & the Martha Years. Anyway, brought to my attention by Candace, here is a list Ms. Wiley has created for her family. It's certainly a good guideline for enriching our kids' lives!

Six Things to Include
in Your Child's Day:

• meaningful work
• imaginative play
• good books
• beauty (art, music, nature)
• ideas to ponder and discuss
• prayer & [my addition] Bible reading
