Susan, it's so great to see this topic on the forum. I don't have kids yet, but I have recent obsession with Waldorf schools.
I've heard of them for a long time, and I just visited one for the first time last weekend (a friend invited me to attend their holiday festival, which was SOOO cool), and I am in LOVE with the place.
The environment was just so beautiful and down to earth and calm, and the kids were all so peaceful and calm...you can just feel
the difference in the whole atmosphere of the place when you visit. I brought home a small book about the place, and read it cover to cover. The philosophy all seems so sane
and wonderful. It just spoke to me so much, I nearly cried. It makes me want to relive my childhood (which I never thought I'd say! ha). It also makes the idea of having kids a lot
more appealing to me!
, knitting in the classroom, does it get better than that?!
How wonderful that your kids attend!
