The Weekly Vista No. 3

I hope you have had a good week friends! This week, we got to visit with my grandparents and celebrate Father’s Day. This year’s Father’s Day celebration was extra special since it is my husband’s first “official” Father’s Day. We got him a print from The Night Sky of our little guy’s birth date and place. I’ll be doing a separate review of it later!

This week’s Weekly Vista edition is going to feature some of the favorite sections from past editions with some special additions just for this week. Hope you enjoy!

Motherhood and parenting top picks
We are trying to build a Montessori style learning experience for our little guy! There is a lot you can do with things around the house, that you do not need to buy, but here are some of things on my shopping list. (I’ll be doing a full blog post on this once we get settled into our new house!)
Sibley Backyard Birding Cards
Toy Wood Drum
Red Wagon
Wooden Bead Maze
Object Permanence Box

Keeping it eco-friendly
We are becoming more and more aware of the impact we make on the environment. When you think about it and really pay attention to it, it is really so devastating. We are called to care for this earth and all the things that live in it. We know we don’t make a big impact all on our own, but hope that some of the choices we are making will inspire others and feed into the momentum surrounding being more conscious with our waste. Here are some of the items we either love or have on our list!
Bees Wrap
S’well Bottle
Reusable Straws
Charcoal Water Filter
Wool Dryer Balls

As always, I hope you’ve enjoyed this week’s roundup! If you ever want to see something in particular included here, make sure you comment on this post. Until next week!
