Brooms, Waldorf

Here are some of the things I've been gazing at lately...

 I really hope you do not mind me downloading this picture and sending everyone who actually reads this blog running over right now at this very moment to find something that will actually bring them some joy when they do that dirty little deed of sweeping.  Not only that, but it comes in a child size, too.  
Waldorf education.  I've been drawn to this for years.  I've put it off for different reasons.  I think it's time though.  I'm taking a few things with us that we have enjoyed in this homeschooling journey.  I'm packing them in a sweet basket and walking down a trail.  It's still homeschooling.  It's just going to be a bit more.  I don't know, meaningful.  I heard that voice that says jump.  Then I read a post I made when my oldest was much younger.  I realized I need to jump. I couldn't afford not to.  Grade 1 may not look like much.  She includes everything you need.  Stories, supplies list, examples of pictures.  I printed out the e-book.  I'm glad I did.  I just print out a bit at a time to read.  And, now I can print out the months outline and stories.  I wasn't sure if it's what I needed.  But, it's wonderful, amazing and everything you need to jump.  Everything you need to start.  The rest will come.  You don't need to be perfect. YOU NEED TO DO.


  1. I have a broom like those. I love it and it does lift my spirits while I am sweeping! Even sweeping deserves some beauty.

  2. So have I. I have 3 girls that are always trying to help clean with my huge broom.


I hope you have enjoyed reading my blog. Your comment should be available soon.
