It's been 3 months since we moved into our tiny abode on the farm. BC is thriving. In so many ways he is like a different kid. Because his physical space is basically unencumbered, his gross motor skills have blossomed. As a matter of fact, his fine motor skills have also taken a leap. All that body-brain connection stuff I've read so much about is playing out right before my eyes simply because my son has been given space. Space to run, jump, fall, climb, garden, dig and haul, kneel and crawl. Space to be free. Space to explore and to experiment. Space to live. Space, even, to "cut the weeds" with his scissors.
