January

Well greetings friends!

Finally back here from our California adventures and ready to finish off our last semester here in NY. We all had such a great break and bypassed the whole winter storm in NY. We did feel a bit bad when everyone of our friends was freezing and we were at the beach with swimming trunks and flip flops. I guess thats why people leave NY for winter.

It is already mid January and I was thinking about making slower homeschooling plans this month and swinging back in February. Still planning on doing Waldorf Essentials for kindergarten and maybe modified stories from “Tell me a Story” for the rest of January.

During our vacation my husband still did a lot of work for the church. For Theophany we blessed the Pacific Ocean! The turn out was great with the ocean being warm that day and all the kids playing at the beach afterwards. For Orthodox Christians it’s a tradition to throw the cross in the water and the person to first get it will have a fruitful year. We were glad to serve the community and heard that it was so cold in NY the creek that is usually used in Theophany service was frozen! Bbbrrrrr…

Here are snippets from our break! As you can tell we spend a lot of time at the beach.

And back to…

Blessed week to come!

Hi Ho Hi Ho on the road we go

Yes we are packing our little bags grabbing our little 6 month old boy and going on a long overdue vacation. We are going to the monastery to visit the monks and nuns of Platina at St. Hermans then going to good ol San Francisco. Vacation with a little bundle of energy should be a new and exciting experience :o)
