the winner is #22!

Thanks to all who entered my giveaway and left such nice comments! Giveaways are fun in general and it's so nice to hear from you all. I wish I had packages for more of you, but alas, only one winner this time. It is Het Kabinet from Holland! Please e-mail me, Het, and I will send you your book. Congratulations! I used random.org to generate a random number. And in case anyone was wondering, I did go through and delete any duplicate comments (I know some of you were having trouble commenting and ended up posting extra comments inadvertently).
Dieter set up a little "show" for us tonight, all on his own, which I love. I love that he is so sweet and innocent right now and unscarred by public life. He's going to kindergarten in the fall, and although I am happy that he is growing up I sort of dread that whole public school scene. Anyway, here is the plot of his little show. The two peg people were brother and sister. They went on an outing and their mother packed a lunch in their backpacks. First they stopped and the stone area, then the raging waters, and finally they crossed the rainbow bridge. Then they ate their lunch. The end.

Awwwww! I love the wooden toys, where did you get them from? My son will be 4 in 2 weeks, it's bittersweet. :)

Hi Denise C. We've been collecting the wooden toys gradually and trying to avoid/eliminate most plastics. The wooden unit blocks (which he used to support the blue playsilk) are years old--they were my son's who is now 20! (I think I got them from answering an ad in the back of Mothering magazine at the time). More recently, a lot of our wooden toys come from either Magic Cabin or Nova Naturals Toys. Both can be found online.

I'm happy to hear that I'm not the only one to be a little uneasy about my little ones starting school!

The show is adorable...love those open-ended toys!

The pics of Dieter's show are great! My 5 year old put on a similar show the other day. He even made tickets for all of us. I just love their innocent imaginations, as well.
