Integrating BSA

From the archives When moms find out we are part of the BSA program (Boy Scouts of America) I get mixed reactions, lol.  Some mothers are appalled that we would be part of it and others wonder just how we make it work with our lessons.  The program for big boys, starting when they are 12, true BSA, not the cubbing program can easily be pulled

Sam’s reading journey

This could also be titled…the journey of a late reader. Super Sam is now almost 8.5 and he is the first of my children that I would say has struggled with reading. I did everything the same.  He is child #4.  Really by my standards this isn’t late, by Waldorf standards it isn’t late either. Many moms worry about late reading, it seems to
