Now the first week of Advent is here we are:
: : Lighting candles at every mealtime to brighten the days as they are getting darker and greyer. The spark and flicker seem to cradle us in their light and bring magic to our days.
: : Making sure Miss K and Little L are getting enough sleep to stay happy and healthy. This applies to me too.
: : Planning our experiences for Advent around the weekends and keeping everything very peaceful and simple Monday to Friday so the children don't get overwhelmed. School at this time of year is very busy with the Christmas Nativity play and seasonal crafting activities, they need the time to rest once home and not be scheduled to anything aside from our mealtime and bedtime rhythm.
: : Feeling excited for the Waldorf Winter Fair this Saturday and choosing our fresh Christmas tree on Sunday.
: : Searching out the perfect recipe for our frst batch of Christmas cookies this weekend!
How are you celebrating Advent?
