balancing act


~ A well-developed sense of humor is the pole that adds balance to your step as you walk the tightrope of life. ~
William Arthur Ward

Day 5 of the circus brings a tightrope of sorts... an impromptu balance beam. A place to find inner quiet, courage... to build confidence and coordination... to be silly and dramatic!

All you need:
- 2x4 between 8 and 10 feet long
- two sturdy chairs
- parasols and pretty skirts are optional

Words to live by: Get up on that tightrope. Don't look down. Find your balance. Know when to hold someone's hand... and when to let go.

  2. The parasols are part of my mother's collection. I'm working on a full post of resources coming soon.

  3. You guys are having so much fun, love the parasols.

  6. This is just so much fun! I know my children would love this as well. The skirts are really sweet.
