                I adore this book.  It's a beautiful read from start to finish.  The Soule's take you on a year long journey with them, as the seasons change and they connect with nature and each other.  I live in the tropics where the season's don't change very much, and this book made me long for the time I spent living on the East Coast.  The photographs of the familiy are natural and honest. The journal entries by Mama and Papa are beautifully reflective and inspiring.  I love when Amanda Soule wri...

                The Rhythm of Family: Discovering a Sense of Wonder through the Seasons

                Description: Many of us with busy families yearn for a slower and simpler life with our kids—one that is connected to the seasons and the natural rhythm of the year, one that has our children spending more time out of doors rather than in, one that balances out some of the busyness of our lives—the computers, the televisions, the cell phones—with a deeper connection to the Earth and an appreciation for and understanding of the natural world. The Rhythm of Family is a guide to living such a life for any family. Following the course of a year through the passing of the seasons, this book explores the ways we can create deep family connections and meaningful memories through living in tune with the cycles of nature. From stomping around in mud boots in the spring to gathering around the woodstove in winter, our activities naturally change from season to season—from the rhythms of the seasons comes the rhythms in our homes, our hearts, our families, and our every day. Paying attention to these changes slows us down, inspires new types of creative play and exploration, instills a sense of family togetherness, and deepens an awareness of nature and self that can make our lives, days, family, and earth grow stronger. The Rhythm of Family explores what we learn and can gain as parents and families by encouraging and experiencing creativity and nature exploration with our children, the seasons can provide us with a rhythm that brings us close to the earth, and closer to our children.
