a revamped playgroup...


These are some of the amazing people who live in my community. We have been gathering together for an Intergenerational Community Circle at Grow Benzie, a new center in our area. Seeing people of all ages come together to play ring around the rosie, sing and laugh together warms my heart with so much love. Toys are simple, natural wood block, play silks, wool balls and animals.


There are also community gardens, and starting soon, a farmer's market and sewing studio.  You'll be hearing plenty more about that soon! Here are a few of my favorite images...

thanks, sallymandy. All it takes is starting a few conversations! I hope you'll give it at try!

What a great idea! I grew up with a very large extended family (my mom was one of 13) so we always had lots of people of different ages around. Plenty of grown ups to talk with or to teach me something. There were lots of babies to play with and learn how to care for and plenty of kids my own age too. I knew, even as a kid, that this is what I would want for my kids, but I wasn't sure how I'd be able to duplicate it. You have the perfect solution.

Great photos of such a sweet idea, Victoria! Side note: I'm shopping for a new camera. What kind do you use?

I have had several Canon Powershots and loved every single one! I'm hoping for a new one soon...
