I apologize for panicking and removing my blog from public access. I won't go into the details of what caused me to pull the plug, but after much thought and prayer, I realized that if this blog can help even one parent, teacher, or child on their journey - it should remain accessible to all.
Life has gotten so busy in the past couple of years that I have not been documenting much of what we've been doing, intending to go back in the summer and photograph our work for the year to post, yet summer flies by and we are already into the next spring. I hope to be better at posting at least a smidgen of what we are doing.
Until then, I hope that this blog can be a place of inspiration and inner quiet where others can be nurtured as I have been. Blessings and light to you all.
Jen, thank you for reactivating your blog. I think that it is an incredibly generous act. I am sure there are thousands of folk, both homeschoolers and not, who have benefited from your blog, myself included.ReplyDelete
Blessings to you and your family,
I for one love your blog and would be so sad to not be able to read it!ReplyDelete
Thank you very much for reactivating your blog, I am really happy that I am able to read your blog, it really helps! My son is 4 years old now, and I decided to homeschool him, and your blog really gave me the concept and ideas how I can do with my son later. Thank you very much for your generous sharing, I understand it really took up a lot of your time, I really appreciate it.ReplyDelete
Blessings to you.
Welcome back Jen,ReplyDelete
I've btdt too! Your blog certainly brought me much inspiration, for which I thank you. I know how much work it takes. Some of you blogging moms make homeschooling, housekeeping and blogging look so simple, I often wonder how you do it. I really struggle with putting the plans into actions and keeping the rhythm going. Yes, at times, it means not blogging.
I'll be looking forward to your posts (with no pressure added.)
I found your blog this weekend while researching Waldorf Math lessons for Grade 1 and 2. I am thankful to have found it.ReplyDelete
Thanks! Your bog is the one that inspired my waldorf like homeschool and a great ressource!ReplyDelete
I'm really glad you're back : )ReplyDelete
So glad you are back!ReplyDelete
So glad to "see" you back. I stop by to check in and see if you've posted and am happy to see you here again. xoxoReplyDelete
PS You know I did finally get the Jakob Streit St, Nicholas book thanks to your post about it way back.ReplyDelete
Thank you to each and every one of you for all for the supportive comments! I know you all are busy, too, and I appreciate the cyber 'hugs' :)ReplyDelete
Lisa - I am THRILLED you got the St. Nicholas book. I love Jakob Streit and was so shocked that it was out of print. Thanks for LMK and MamaGoose, I found it was easier when the girls were younger and I kept life simpler. Everything had a rhythm and I was very organized (even though, no my house was and is not always clean) - but as they have gotten older and have gotten into more outside activities that are more time consuming, some things just fall to the wayside and blogging is one of those things, as are taking photos of those moments. But we all do the best we can and I know I have been so grateful for all the friends we've made through the blogging and waldorf/homeschooling community. And I have been so inspired by other moms. We're kinda like a nice support system for each other! So thank you for all that you've done, too, as well as all the other awesome mamas and teachers and bloggers out there that take the time to share! Blessings and happy spring to you all!
I just found your blog so I'm really glad you put it back up. I look forward to reading it and getting some help in my Waldorf homeschool.ReplyDelete
Blessings and care to you Jen! I often think of you and your girls and miss you not blogging yet goodness life is full so know just where you are coming from. Love KellyReplyDelete
I did not know you had taken it down, but I will tell you that I used your blog about one million and ten times during my first and second year homeschooling. Your blog helped me to SURVIVE!!! My oldest, who is now in 3rd grade, did not take to learning very easily (we have since learned she had a vision problem, now fixed thanks to vision therapy, YAY!!!) and your blog was a lifesaving resource during that time for me. You are the reason I started my blog TEACHING CAT AND BUG. I felt like without you I couldnt have gotten through that year of homeschooling so i am PAYING it FORWARD. Imagine how many people you have helped, if we are the small percentage taking time to email you. I cannot thank you enough!!!ReplyDelete
I'm so happy that you reactivated your blog---thank you! You have directly helped me as I have begun homeschooling my first grade daughter as of September. I am so grateful for your help as we make our way! Much appreciation.---MindyReplyDelete
