Our Trip to the Portland Farmer’s Market
Babies are deeply driven and passionate about understanding the world and understanding the people around them. A baby's whole essence is about plugging into the world.
-Karen Wynn, Yale University
In spite of the fact that our preschoolers might argue vehemently against the idea that they are babies, Wynn's quote remains an excellent description of their essence– and will for several years to come. Taking a trip out into the world together is one of the best possible ways to support them to plug into it.
The MAX ride, the city streets, the sights and smells of the market filled their senses and inspired their curiosity. We take this shared experience into the life of our community and treasure this reference point, this adventure we all know now, and allow it to find it's influence in the days and weeks to come.
