Well, well, well. Fancy seeing me here!
Why, hellooooo everyone! Sorry i've been such a bad blogging mama ;) for the past 6 or so months ~ but I'm officially back with a new thirst 4 adventure & ... a new city 2 discover 2. We moved to Sydney in January & it's taken a while 2 get settled but I think we're finally there.
The boys are doing so well. There have been big changes for both of them but most notably for Hug who finished Kindergarten at his Waldorf Steiner school at the end of last year & started at a traditional state school for Class 1. We have been blessed to find a Steiner Family Day Care that Lovely can attend (1 day a week) & since Easter he has been attending a wonderful new preschool also. The preesk is 2 days a week & although it isn't officially a Montessori or Steiner program I feel it has lots of earthy elements that echo a lot of the things I love about both.
All in all things are progressing nicely... though I'm certainly still getting used 2 a lot of the finer details of life in a traditional school. I'm sure I'll have lots to say about that in the future. Lol.
We haven't actively focused on Montessori or Steiner learning since we landed... but I feel the tides turning over the past few weeks & I am implementing home-school again on Mondays & Tuesdays for Lovely & hoping that these lessons spill out into our wider lives.
Finally, a big *thank u* 2 the lovely people who have dropped me little messages over the past few months 2 say hello & make sure everything was okay & to the blogs that have continued to link to my pages (especially The Crafty Crow + The Montessori Goldmine + this list of the top 50 must-read Montessori blogs ).
Please say hello & throw me some iNSPiRATION! I want 2 hear what everyone is up to :) xoxo
