WHAT I LIKE BEST (from a happy customer):
- The First Waldorf School - I haven't seen that discussion in any other guide I've read, and I'm very eager to read more!
- Inspirational Quotes - Several now grace my refrigerator.
- Simple Forms - if you could see the complicated forms I made up for myself last summer while planning our first homeschool year...I made it so much more complicated than it needed to be! LOL. I especially love the form that includes the daily and weekly rhythms and meal ideas.
- The Environment Section - a small paragraph with a huge impact on how I'm organizing our space. Your suggestion about clearing the clutter and 2 baskets per child. Brilliant!
- Tips for Planning - some gold nuggets in this list! My great challenge is fitting in all the housekeeping along with the schooling, so I appreciate your practical suggestions that speak to this.
- Resource List - The limited number of titles keeps the overwhelm at bay, and is, again, very helpful.
- Finally, the reminder you give that "all education is self-education and this is only the beginning" eased some built-up anxiety. I needed the reminder that this is a learning journey for EVERYONE!!
