I'm Hannah, I just turned 28 and I live in Idaho. Married to my hs sweetheart for 9 years now; we just welcomed our 4th little one, Ronan.
I am homeschooling our just-turned 7 y/o dd for 1st grade using the Christopherus curriculum, and trying to do preschool with the older boys. DS1 will be 5 in a couple weeks, and ds2 is 2.5.
I've gone back and forth (up and down?
) with crunchiness as dh is pretty mainstream and likes it just fine thankyouverymuch
He has made the kids some great wooden toys/gifts the past few years, and more or less goes along with me because he knows I research the heck out of almost everything.
My personal challenges: Organization - I am great if I'm at a job, but really suck at home for some reason...too much stuff! It really drains me I think, but so hard to overcome.
Rhythm is sort of tied into that, I feel like I shouldn't be doing anything until the house is perfect, so I feel like I'm in a transition phase (that's lasted for several years
I need to simplify for all of us, I'm hoping to get motivated to do this once and for all!
I found out about Waldorf thru a friend who had taken a parent-tot class at our local W school. I took it 3 times I think with dd, then dd and ds as a baby, then just ds alone.
So goodness, I guess it's been nearly 5 years already! I really should be in a good rhythm by now.
Anyway, enough of 'The Confessions of AutumnMama'
Looking forward to getting to know everyone and delving into these books!
