Feeling better...

I have made my final selections for next year, with the help of the children themselves. While we drooled over Oak Meadow, I thought back about the times I have tried to use it, unsuccessfully. It simply is not the best fit for my family. Having said that though, I plan to borrow ideas from it, mainly the Main Lesson Book approach to completing lessons. Phew... a huge sigh of relief! Now I can get down to the nitty-gritty of planning it all out, since both kids have said a weekly guide (also borrowed from Oak Meadow) would be helpful. I did just buy Waldorf Education: A Family Guide, to aid me in incorporating more Waldorf ideas into our homeschooling.

  1. I would love to know what you like about the Waldorf: A Family Guide book. Some Waldorf books are practical (like ALGF's) and some are just touchy/feely without much meat. I've been looking at it for a while myself. I'm so glad you have peace, G.
