Last Thursday, Kai asked if we could include Daddy in “Poetry Teatime”. Daddy was agreeable.
So Kai helped me
taste the cookie dough make cookies.
And decorate the cookies.
We covered the table with our
slightly fancy sheet “pretty tablecloth” and set places for everyone. We had the cookies and “Russian Tea“.
Then, we all took turns reading poems. Kai read the most. But we grown-ups read some.
Poetry Tea Time is something we learned about on the Brave Writer website. Traditionally, they do them on Tuesdays. That doesn’t work for us… our homeschool group has Park Days on Tuesday. So, we’ve done them a couple of times, mainly sporadically. I’m thinking, though, of having this be a regular Thursday thing – maybe sometimes with Daddy and sometimes without.
It’s quite enjoyable to sit down to some fun treats and a nice drink and just relax.
