we've been using the harvest poem that sasha posted on her blog:
Now all the farmers from far and wide
Have gathered their bounty of countryside:
Corn and barley from field and wold
Honey from beehive and wool from the fold,
Fruit from the orchard all ripe, red and gold,
Log for the fire to keep out the cold.
once thanksgiving is past, we'll delve into the winter book.

i am so torn between classical education formats and waldorf. i like them both. sometimes, i feel like i'm trying to cram too much into the day. i try to stick to mostly waldorf but she's so eager to read and do worksheets and write that i feel i owe it to her.
i've tried to start doing one on one with sage. that went over like a lead balloon with jaden. how do mothers juggle preschooling 2 and 4 year olds??!
