These lovely water lilies really open up and seem to bloom in water! This is by far one of our favorite homeschool lessons.
Making the lilies was simple. Using the book All Year Round for inspiration, I cut out the leaf and water lily shapes. Without telling the kids what we were doing, I gave them each a flower and we colored them with crayons. I told them to color the flower anyway they liked, but to leave the back blank.
Making Waldorf dolls is very rewarding. It takes a little getting use to, but it is a very forgiving art.

Working on next year’s curriculum, I was distracted by an epic Pirate battle taking place in our living room.
Now that the Summer heat has reached her full intensity, the kids are forced to play indoors during the afternoon. It’s a good thing we have so many lovely friends living in our building. Our house is almost always full of children at play!
After an amazing trip to Baja Mexico, we stopped to eat and play in San Diego.
The weather and water felt so good. We did not want to leave!
