Form Drawing

My dryer finally died.  Boo!  It's only been here since we bought the house ten yrs ago and then who knows how long before that.  Guess I can't complain.  I was just thinking about how I should just put up a clothes line and hang all of our clothes since it's sooo nice outside.  And then the clouds rolled in, since we had our first chance of rain in two weeks on the day my dryer broke, and Harper wet six outfits by lunch time.  Yeah, not a good plan for maintaining my sanity.  Well, at least it broke during Columbus Day sales.  Says the woman who laughs at Columbus Day each year and celebrates by watching Who Really Discovered America?  Irony?  I'll take it.  Because it's not like we're gonna see The Real Early American Explorer sales any time soon, right?

Also, speaking of economics, we're in the process of refinancing our mortgage.
My head is all over the place.

If you want a more pulled-together post, check out my article for The Homeschool Classroom.  I discuss form drawing and handwriting, and while I still feel like I have so much more to learn about form drawing, I suggest some some very simple, easy ways to try it out for yourself.   It has quickly become our favorite addition to homeschooling.  Ella always says it's her favorite "subject."

  1. Can you suggest one of the Waldorf books? They all look good, but I wanted to see if you were actually using one of them.

  2. I'm using the Christopherus book, which I find is great for beginners. I'll send you the link. There are others that are better for older children. I'll send you a link to the one I have.
