Returning to our roots


cornstarch clay snowman, Jan 2010

Recently, we moved from our little rancher in North Carolina back into my Grandfather’s house. My children are the 4th generation of my family to live here. In getting in touch with home, with family, with what I know to be real and abiding, it is obvious that one of those things is a natural, nature based education for my youngest child. One that is inspired by but not dictated by art, nature, steering clear of tv and commercialism.

In the years I’ve been homeschooling my little girl, we have cycled through our options. We have used Waldorf; Classical; and School At Home approaches. We have now come full circle and realized that the most enjoyable education for us is one inspired by Steiner’s beautiful approach. I am not a purist, not in any way, but as my little one tells me, “Mom. I really like the artsy-fartsy stuff.”

So there you have us in a nutshell. Big hearted, kind, but a little rough around the edges. We’re evolving as fast as we can.
