  2. I found myself one morning, getting up from my journaling session to go pick up my phone to come back and take a picture of said journaling session. (face palm anybody??) And as I sat there at 5 o’clock in the morning posting to my Instagram account about this journaling session, this tidal wave of clarity just hit me like a tsunami. Why am I doing what I do? The journaling, the exercising, the eating well, the intentional living practices, the healing, the therapy, the Spartan races, and on and on. Am I doing it for the picture? So that I’d have proof positive of what an

  4. Our 2nd day back at lessons. Sams day of form drawing. I’m really loving this new rhythm. Spending this week figuring out our new schedule. I used to do two main lessons each school day. But I think each child will now get two days each. With the 5th day being free. Hmmmm ps food shots in there too

  5. I first read Simplicity Parenting when I was pregnant with our son and I thought I learned what I needed to from it and moved on to the rather large stack of other parenting books sitting in my office. Flash forward a few years (how has it been a few years already?!?!?! Mind boggling!) and as our son has entered into his toddler years, we have been beginning to encounter new and challenging behaviors. I have a few wonderful mentors that I’ve been able to strongly lean on in this season and all of them recommended I read Simplicity Parenting. So despite having already read it, I scrounged it up

  6. The children themselves are this book. We should not learn how to teach out of any book other than the one lying open before us and consisting of the children themselves. Rudolf Steiner ~ If this photograph had sound, you'd hear the most beautiful singing coming from the child painting it. He often sings whilst painting because he is happy. There are no hard lines here to box him in, so he is allowed to let his spirit roam free here without judgement. The result is an outer display of the happiness from within. An important thing to notice here is the flow in which the happiness travels

  7. We have been "studying" conifer trees for well over a year. . . my girls have been fascinated with them ever since I organized a little lesson on Hemlock trees for our local Waldorf Co-op at Hemlock Bluffs, a local nature preserve with beautiful hemlocks. First I studied the local Hemlocks myself. . . and I really fell in love with them. I wrote a short children's story about a Hemlock tree and Woolly Bugs (which will be available to download in our downloads section for subscribers!). It is an adorable story with forest creatures too. So I practiced my story over and o

  8. Our first lesson this week was Ferns, and I'm going to do a little Flashback Friday to exactly a year ago when we foraged ferns as a family in the mountains. . . we were able to reference this trip a lot this week and it was close to our hearts 💛 We had a sudden unexpected trip due to my daughter needing a tooth extraction and we have been seeing a very gentle biologic dentist in the mountains for years (no mercury or fluoride used. If you would like to find a holistic dentist, search the IOAMT website). We decided that if the trip needed to be part no fun, it also should be fun! So we pl

  9. We started off our week with a Mushroom hike! A few folks from our local Waldorf group were able to meet us at a nature preserve (so we were just able to look, not forage and take home this time, so as to keep the preserve intact) and have a little picnic and hike. We were worried that since it was so early in the season, we might not find many mushrooms at all! Fortunately, we were able to locate three kinds! We found them mostly in the lower more humid areas of the preserve. We will keep looking out for them all Spring and Summer, but it was nice to see some right before our lesson!
