Julius the Bear.
Julius in Asiago, Italy
Julius was once just a sweet bear going about his days hoping to find a home, when, much to his luck, Aunt Karen found him and thought he was just perfect for one little munchkin. Since Julius has joined us, he's morphed into "Julius the Traveling Bear Who Must Be Photographed As We Go About." This is a lot of pressure for the Party of 3 as we are bad, very, very bad about
losing misplacing stuff. . .thanks, Zia.
He'll be our Flat Stanley, except that he's not flat or named Stanley, and he won't be sent to relatives and friends in foreign lands (yet). I am thinking of a map or atlas or globe or something (suggestions appreciated) to mark his travels. . . . more authentic learning (from 2 bona fide, multiply certified classroom teachers!) . . . gotta love it . . . no unschooling will be needed . . . first bananas and now bears. . . whew. . . . I knew you'd be relieved.
Julius in Venice, Italy
Here's a shot of Julius being held by the kiddo being photographed by Aunt Karen being photographed by me in Piazza San Marco (or "Pigeon Square," as one relative who shall remain unnamed, called it) in Venice last week. Julius will get around. . . if I can only remember where I last saw him! I think a ski weekend is in his near future.
And, what's with that unschooling business anyway? Really now.
