And the inspiration for my needle-felted mushrooms.
A few weeks ago we headed west to Three Creeks Farm for shearing day. It was a beautiful yet chilly spring day on the small farm.
While it was a busy day, I felt relaxed being in the countryside and I loved the sense of community with the other folks who came to help.
We all brought food to share and the girls ran free as we watched the sheep being sheared and then picked the fleece.
You bring such warmth and growth, and you fill our house with light and happiness. When you're around we want to run, skip, jump and stay up all night just to be with you.
Why then, Spring, do you taunt me so? Your pretty chirping birds and beautiful flowers tempt me outside only to make my eyes water. You attack my sinuses with pollen and make my lungs work over-time.
and something happens.
Without needing you to teach them, your kids will naturally and happily...
Let's all go!
Rhythm of the Home is a seasonal online magazine full of Waldorf and Montessori inspired ideas for families. Being a Waldorf family, I have found it to be a wonderful resource to help bring Waldorf traditions into our home.
Full of herbs, favorite veggies and flowers.
For busy hands and feet to stomp, water, pick, and eat.
We included rosemary, mint, thyme, basil, sage, carrots, cherry tomatoes, marigolds, lavender, chamomile, daisies, hollyhocks, and sunflowers. It only took one sunny afternoon to choose, buy, and plant. Phew!
