I have a new blog crush. I don't even know the writer's name, but I am smitten. Childhood Magic...a Photojournal of Second-Generation Homeschooling. (For a further description of the writer and the blog go here.) The projects and activities she does with her children are so sweet and inspiring. Many are very similar (even identical!) to what C-Man and JuJu do at the Waldorf School, but I'm not the one there with them while they're being made. This mom is there and gets to participate in and witness all the magic that happens.
Check out this awesome gift basket she made with her son for one of his friends. There isn't a gift more heartfelt than that, no?
A handknitted gnome, a felted egg with a playsilk inside, two handmade wrist cuffs (one leather, one knitted). I'm in love.
A good friend of mine just started homeschooling her daughter, and ever since then I've been saying to myself "Could I?" "Should I?" "Nah." Even B agreed I'm probably not cut out for it. But the kids who get homeschooled (at least ones like the kids from Childhood Magic...with super dedicated and thoughtful parents) get the best of everything, I think.
What do you think? Would you homeschool your child?
