The composter arrived last week and thanks to my (best friend's ex-boyfriend's old dolly he let me borrow once and I never returned) cart we just spruced up with new wheels, I moved that bad boy right where I needed him and popped the top. I added some fresh cut grass and Benjamin contributed by picking up some pine needles and a pinecone and throwing them on in. I added a bit of shredded cardboard and some green waste from produce and we are getting things moving!
I'm following the best advice I was given: don't stress about it. Add, spin, relax.
And so, we are. Wouldn't you know though, last week at the library, we found this little gem that fit right into my little lesson. I swear it made me squeeeee a little bit just thinking about connecting the learning as any teacher would do. Obviously my nearly 18-month old is a bit too young to really comprehend what the heck composting is, but he's not too young to make connections between a book and real life. How our library carries a book on composting but doesn't carry a single book or digital copy on Love & Logic for Early Childhood, I don't know. I digress.

p.s. Glad most of you understood my humor about hippies-- I for one embrace my inner hippie and was just being funny. Hope that was obvious enough.
