How was your homeschool week?
We had a big wind storm over the weekend and were without power for 24 hours. The wind was so loud, that combined with the pitch blackness, Sola was too scared to sleep, even with me sleeping with her.

If you missed my first week’s post about our Waldorf kindergarten homeschool lesson plans, the books needed to complete our year of lesson plans are listed at the bottom of this post.

The little Dog laughed,
To see such sport,
And the Dish ran away with the Spoon
