November is the time of year when I think we could all use a little love, a little light, a little fun…I mean, after all, the days are getting darker, homeschooling has gone on for several months now, and the holidays are coming…
So here are a few links to resonate with your spirit and inspire you:
I really enjoyed Annette’s post here: http://ourseasonsofjoy.com/musings/nostalgia/ The closest place I can think of right now that is close to what Annette is talking about is www.homespunwaldorf.com because it is not associated with any curriculum provider. I don’t get over there as often as I would like, but when I am there, folks are friendly and helpful and kind to others and there are reviews of all kinds of Waldorf related books and curriculum, along with good old-fashioned parenting and homeschooling advice.
I love this link about “Imperfection” over at Simple Mom: http://simplemom.net/imperfection/#more-15872 The blogosphere is so odd; folks assume you must be perfect if you have a blog that talks about homeschooling or parenting and yet here we all are: human with our flaws, our quirks, our fallacies. I have many! Many!
I thought this post was really inspiring: http://simplehomeschool.net/sarahs-mistake/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+SimpleHomeschool+%28Simple+Homeschool%29
I am sure many of you have seen this article in the NY Times about Waldorf Education: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/10/23/technology/at-waldorf-school-in-silicon-valley-technology-can-wait.html?_r=1&pagewanted=all
And what could be more inspiring than muffins? I come back to this recipe again and again:
Oh, and I nearly forgot this really important post about the benefits of taking your children to church: http://charmingthebirdsfromthetrees.blogspot.com/2011/10/take-kids-to-church.html
Anyway, please do link to anything you have found recently that resonated with you or inspired you. I would love to read it!
