...we made blackberry lemonade...
...and then with our bevs within reach we broke out the beads and pipe cleaners and made some firey-colored solstice ornaments!
The ornaments we made in this session will double as our Nature/Solstice Badges.
Side note: As you may know from past blog posts (like this one and this one), we choose to incorporate nontraditional holidays- like the solstices- into our family rhythm to preserve the meaning and the sacred in the why behind what we do day to day. As a family, we truly believe that an ethnocentric existence robs one of the richness that is the human experience. Our gracious friends joined in for the fun of it, and we had a great time!
