J played with his cars today.  Not so unusual for a 5 year old boy, but it’s something I hadn’t seen him do for a long time.  I wonder if it’s just a coincidence or if I’ve created the space for this by finally letting go of my “he-needs-to-be-writing/reading-etc-etc-in-exactly-the-way-and-pace-as-he-would-be-at-school” anxiety, to appreciate the amazing learning I see in him every day,  and to trust him to learn everything he needs and wants to learn in his own time.  Which this afternoon was playing with cars.
