May Fair Blossoms

Our adventures in envious Waldorf behavior continues with this year’s May Fair celebration, complete with a real May pole, cake walks, silk watercolors and face painting, flower crowns and lots and lots of bubbles.  It started with a walk around our very own May pole with Little H’s morning garden class, with a guest appearance by big sister Em.

Then we returned that afternoon for the school-wide celebration, where I remembered just how much Em has enjoyed it in years past and probably should be attending school there even now.  She just blossoms there.

Little H loves being there, too.  We three ladies had a lovely afternoon watching the classes do the cake walks, snacking on delicious cookies and weaving flowers into a crown for Em (which was a true labor of love, but was worth it in the end!).

I have always struggled with our decision to pull Em out of the Waldorf school for financial reasons, since I feel that she is such a perfect fit for that brand of alternative education.  But I have hope after a very successful preK year that she will bloom wherever she is planted, as long as we continue to nurture her sweet spirit and individual self.

We’ll just take every year as it comes and enjoy this girl as she grows!
