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.
Bonnie, my friend, you guessed it! After a l-o-n-g hiatus, I decided that I missed my little shop so I'm busy at work, like an elf, creating some special little people to bring warmth and spirit to some wonderful homes in 2012!
And, of course, we have to celebrate by having our first giveaway of 2012. That giveaway is on the horizon, so be sure to check back next week!!!!
I've also just created a facebook page for Ancient Hearth. So feel free to join us there, too!
