During the summertime, we have the luxury of extra special parts of our home rhythms and routines. One such time together is Tea Time, first mentioned here.
Using linens, my grandmother's cups (my great grandparents' among them) and a great grandmother's teapot, poetry either that we have or check out from the library and any manner of sweets we decide to try for our snack we make a little tea party. It lasts 15-20 minutes, but we genuinely look forward to these. They are going even better than I thought they might. We discussed today that we need to find another time for them during our hectic school/work week.
