Stylish Blogger Award from Sally at Fairy Dust Teaching!

I can’t tell you how surprised/happy/giddy I felt when I found out that Sally over at Fairy Dust Teaching had nominated me for a Stylish Blogger Award! I think the most awesome part of this was to know Sally – whose blog I worship – had paid attention to my blog over here at all! So thank you so much, Sally, and know that I think you and your projects are absolutely brilliant!!!

The rules of acceptance:

1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this award.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Award 10-15 recently discovered great bloggers.
4. Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award!

7 Things About Me
1. I secretly don’t like knitting and wish I didn’t feel obligated by all-thing’s-homey to learn!

2. I want a family cow. In the worst way possible!

3. I’m addicted to checking my email. But then if I don’t have the time to respond to people right away, I feel guilty because I read their email already!

4. I’m addicted to reading. When I latch on to a new interest or passion, I read about it until everyone around me is sick of me and then I read some more. 🙂

5. In my head, Waldorf, Westom A. Price, and the “Radical Homemakers”/back to the land concept’s are completely melded into one inseparable life philosophy.

6. I really want to watch the sun set someday level with the horizon. This of course means I must travel to an exotic island.

7. I love ballet and in theory I am always wanting to go to ballets, but when I get there I’m fidgety and aching to get home to something productive, like the garden. I think this marks a decline in my artistic aesthetics.

The blog’s I am nominating. These are some of my favorite blog’s! Even though some of these blogs have a different focus then mine, I relate to them, I look forward to their updates and wish I knew these people in RL, because I am sure we would all be kindred spirits. 😉

    Hi, I saw your post on Mrs. M’s yahoo group – then I came to your blog – and I have enjoyed my time here.

    Anyways, My five year old was born on 9/29/05 – she will be 6 and 11 months when she starts 1st grade if she were mainstream. I might wait until she is 7 and two months to start grade one – I homeschool and I am very dedicated to preserving my childrens childhood.

    Best, Nicole

      Hi Nicole,

      Thanks for stopping by! I must admit Mrs. M has thoroughly confused me…I previously was under the impression in Waldorf it was thought most important for the child to be 7 for the majority of the 1st Grade year. This is completely new to me that it is in fact 6 which they should be for the majority of the year?? I can’t picture m daughter being ready for real “school” in just a few months (well, in like 6 months!). I don’t think Mrs. M is right on this one as I am almost positive I’ve read 50,000 times over the 1st Grader is supposed to be 7 (or almost)!
