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.
Oh, When I first encountered Waldorf education, 30 years ago, this was one of the very first things I learnt to say, it is forever lovely, cheers MarieReplyDelete
I love the picture...I wish it would get out of the 90's so I can enjoy the fall. Jodie turned this into a snappy little tune with her penny whistle.ReplyDelete
