First Week of School

 First morning of school, new chalkboard drawing (without explanation = mystery), new calendars, new school stuff, special breakfast; always a special memorable day!

 A special friend is letting us borrow her Waldorf Calendar for the upcoming school year. We are honored to have it in our home for the year! Thankyou!!

 Checking out their basket of new school supplies, pencils, silks, books, main lesson books etc.

 Last of the garden flower posies making it's way to the house.

 "push and pull" kneading the spelt sourdough challah bread for Rosh Hashannah.

 We are studying Hebrew culture, traditions and ancient history through stories, crafts, song and celebrations this fall. Here is our table set for Rosh Hashannah. (social studies :)

 Final non snowy Friday playground day of the year. (P.E) 

 Celebrating Michaelmas with our Children of the Boreal Homeschool Cooperative. Wearing silks that we dyed earlier this summer with flowers, wearing willow crowns braided by the kids...
(social studies)

 Walking the Spiral.

 Passing the light.

 Final garden harvesting. The kids are hauling a tub of comfrey root to the house to chop up for medicine, fresh comfrey root oil. (science :)

What our mornings look like for at least a little while, both kids working quietly and me seizing a precious moment to step back to survey the peace that temporarily reigns in my kingdom.
(language arts and math :)
