Yesterday, we listed to one of our favorite guided meditations from Sitting Still Like a Frog. We got out our pillows and spread out all over the room. We even had one of the "big kids", Evan, join us. In our minds, we went to our "safe place". After, we drew a picture of what our safe place looked like. It was amazing to me how many different images there were. One child went to a dark cavern where a batman suit was hanging in the corner. Another was tucked away in his own little mushroom house.

Here are just a few pictures from yesterday:
|Maya is on the sea, surrounded by many of her beloved animals|
|Max is running down a hill, with beautiful trees around him|
|Amelie is tucked into bed with her whole family|
|Sena likes to picture himself taking dogs for a walk|
|Isaya goes to Orlando in his mind, and looks at the beautiful palm trees|
