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 CrowThe 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

  1. Wow Amber! What a surprise! I've missed hearing about your adventures, I've missed your photos too (it's a pleasure to finally see your own by the way - you are a very pretty lady:). It's seams like you went through so much during the past couple of months. Traditional school..? Well, this is a surprise. Can't wait to hear more about it.
    We've had some busy time too. Moving to a new house, which we renovated almost on our own; growing up a bit - all of us... and we are expecting our daughter to join us somewhen in August..:)
    Welcome back! I've been praying silently for you return...:)

  2. Hi, welcome back. How's Sydney? Is it as exciting to live in as it's portrayed?
    How's Hug liking school? Is it a bit of a shock after his Montessori/Steiner beginnings? I hope it's going well? I'll be interested to hear how he's doing and how you feel about it.

    I've started a second blog that concentrates on my thoughts on teaching in a Montessori school - professional development for want of a better phrase.

  3. Welcome back Amber - Not sure you will remember me either! Lots of changes, I do not have my Montessori Moments blog anymore. I still love Montessori, so I feature a Montessori post every Monday on my new blog - Mommy Moment.

    I am so glad that you are back to blogging! I've missed you!!!


  4. Hi Amber

    Welcome back! I've been a bad blogger too over the past months - have been lurking every now and then! Hoping to start back up again soon and looking forward to reading your new posts!

  5. So glad you're back!! I found your blog (and loved it!!) shortly before you took a break from posting. Looking forward to seeing more of your inspiring ideas!

  6. Yay! Yay! Yay! You're blogging! There is nothing I like more than a cup of tea and some Rainbow Mama in the afternoon when T. and A. are having their quiet time.

  7. Thank you for sharing your beautiful photos. I love them! Come and visit my blog:
