A hearth is the heart of the home. It is where we come to gather, especially at the end of the day. We draw about the fire to warm ourselves; we take in the smells of the cooking, nourishing our bodies; we come to tell stories of our day, nourishing our spirits. Yearning for the wisdom of the past, I hope those who come to this blog will feel the warmth of the hearth.
I am homeschooling my Grade 5 twin girls using Waldorf inspired education and that is the primary focus of this blog.
I have spent quite a bit of time documenting our Grade 1 year, which can be found through the links below. Grade 2 is sparse and for that, I apologize. Grade 3 is even more sparse as life keeps us more and more pressed for time. Nonetheless, I have decided to leave this blog up because I know how much I have relied on other blogs to enhance my children's lives and even if I don't have time to put as much content up as I did when my twins were younger, I hope the efforts I have put out in prior years will help inspire other families who have embarked on their own unique journeys.

Now for those who might be interested, Michelle also runs an amazing yahoo group out of Vermont called, GreenTaraMama. She is a wealth of knowledge, always on the prowl for holistic, healthy, green, fair trade, waldorf inspired, natural living products and advice to help those of us who prioritize that lifestyle! Not only is there a wealth of knowledge through the mommas in her yahoo group, but she offers fabulous deals on many products (waldorf included). She just wrapped up a 20% discount on Mercurius products through Art Makes Sense - perfect timing for grabbing the rest of our Grade 2 supplies. I have bought several of our Ostheimer figures through her special sales and every bit counts! She has Kinderkram, Evi Dolls, Servv products, Blue Canoe, etc, etc...
One of the many amazing things about Michelle is that even though her group is large (almost 500 members), she makes each and every person feel like a friend next door! Being a part of her group, in support of a natural lifestyle, has been such a blessing! So thank you, Michelle! :D
And if you're interested in joining, I hope to see you over there soon!!!
