A Homeschool Story
Blogs I follow
|Location||Midwest, along the Mississippi, United States|
|Introduction||This is my chronicle of pursuing knowledge, balance, nature in our lives, a Waldorf education, good food, wisdom and laughter, with my five kids and French husband, here, along the banks of the Mississippi and in France.|
|Interests||We learn together, my five children; Cate, 21, Duncan, 20, Valentine, 16, Charles, 14, Gael, 11, and my husband, Pierre, on the banks of the Mississippi River. Our homeschool style is Waldorf-based. We spend lots of time: outdoors, sailing, taking walks in the woods, camping, and inside: cooking, baking, playing guitar and piano, making art, theatre, painting, Girl Scouts, cartooning and playing with our pets; two cockatiels, one lizard and a dog. I hope to grow up to be Tasha Tudor, tucked into an 18th century farmhouse, creating and growing things and pretending we are not really in the 21st century, except maybe for my laptop!|

You're in the grocery store with a broken cart. How will you ever be that hungry?
I'm in the chocolate aisle, I'll figure it out.
