Our First week of school

I already posted about our first day of school.  Now since our boys are young and we have chosen a Waldorf path for education, we aren't really doing 'school' stuff.  But since all TJ's friends have gone off to school and many more people keep asking if he is in school, we decided to start too in our own way.

I won't be posting every week but here are a few highlights of our first week.  I am so excited about this year.  We will be focusing on seasons and festivals.  Enjoying making a lot of homemade food and other things to use around the house.  We are also trying to focus on expressing ourselves in more appropriate ways, and showing love to others (especially our brother).
TJ washed all the fruit and veggies

We all met Super Sam

Super Sam joined us for a few walks

We went to the garden plot several times

TJ and I made two lovely nature mobiles

We enjoyed all God's creatures

Super Sam and his pet turtle found some beautiful rocks to start our rock collection

The boys dressed as leaves for Circle Time

Our toys all helped tell our story this week

We made peach apple sauce
We made more pasta sauce using all the veggies TJ had washed
How was your week?
How are you celebrating the seasons?


  1. What a wonderful week!! It looks like so much fun. I haven't quite been ready to give up on summer yet, but am slowly getting into fall mode. I guess I'll start fall crafts next week. Thank you for sharing at Happy Family Times!!

  2. What a lovely week. Sounds like you've found a great rhythm that is working for you all. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Wow! You are one busy mom. Peach applesauce sounds yummy! We made plain applesauce this week. We're on our third week of homeschool now and seems to be going well. Stopping by from Mob Society
