Maxx and Kitty Helping Around the House

Maxx just loves to help around the house and I encourage it. Our soft furry friends always want to help out too... So Maxx wears them so they don't feel left out. Today was Kitty's day to help. Part of our daily rhythm is, we have a specific chore. Today is "vacuum day". Maxx showed me how strong he was to lend a hand on the other side of the table with his mighty pushes. Kitty helped Maxx get in all the corners and crevices with the vacuum hose. Maxx said, "Kitty smells a mouse in our house, he really does, Momma." I have not see any signs of a mouse, but I have heard that cats have an amazing sense of smell, and it could be possible.
After "vacuum day" the house just feels fresh.
Thanks Maxx and Kitty for all your sweet help.

Last Day of School Celebration

Here it is our last day, of our new school, for this school year. It seems like just yesterday we started. We are so thankful for this small beautiful school here in Houston. Our new friends have been so warm and welcoming.

Maxx and I have had a beautiful journey over the past several months, and Waldorf education has been one thing I have so much gratitude for. The biggest help to me as a parent in all of our major changes and adjustments was to focus and create daily, weekly, monthly, seasonally, and yearly rhythms. The rhythm works so well, and if we miss a beat or we get out of our rhythm...a roller coaster of a day or week it can be.

Have a beautiful summer our Shining Star friends!

Patience and Fortitude

Maxx can do it!
He is so patient, and takes one button at a time.
"I can do this Mom!", he says.

Oh this happy day of May!

What a beautiful way to start May.
What a joyous celebration.
What fun to meet new people and make new friends.
Oh, what spring will bring.
Happy May Day!

Now's the month of May
Time to run and play
Throw your cares away
Until another day

Now's the month of May
Time to run and play
Find your partner now
And with her take a bow

Now's the month of May
Time to run and play
Take a dear friend by the hand
And walk around our stand

Now's the month of May
Time to run and play
Time to take our Ribbons
And circle round our pole

Our beautiful May day celebration at the Shining Star Waldorf School.
