Beautiful pictures! May I ask what Waldorf homeschooling is? Saw it written at the top and was intrigued:)www.hollandsreverie.blogspot.com
Hey, thanks. Waldorf style of education attempts to respect the child as a whole person. I see it as a way of raising a complete human being rather than simply the stuff thats done in schools (schooling:) There is so many elements to it and different folks of course (just like us) make it their own. For example, we are partial to not rushing reading, ensuring our kids and us spend everyday somewhere in nature whether it be a forest or a field or a lake. The relationship with nature and wonder about it are some of our favorite elements of Waldorf. We are also partial to the fact that there are no screens in most waldorf homes and certainly all waldorf schools, so we do not have a TV in our house and our kids have a pretty much no screen time (that of course changes if they are sick or we are traveling). But most of all the part of Waldorf that we like and aspire to is conscious parenting and letting our kids be kids. But probably much better explained here http://www.whywaldorfworks.org/02_w_education/.
