They really do this stuff

We had an amazing afternoon playing under a glorious autumnal tree in front of the Bellevue Library today. The girls frolicked (well, one girl, one owl), we chased each other, leaves were tossed, there was dancing, actual Spanish spoken, and both girls spontaneously started sorting their leaf collections by color. It's nice to see that small children really do choose activities like sorting of their own volition, even in a completely unprepared environment. I guess Maria Montessori really did make accurate observations :)
