Montessori education information from a Montessori teacher and Mom. Personal art work and journal entries about my life as a busy Mom of three sons ranging in age from 5 years to 19 years.
My hope: To create a place where parenting questions can be answered and conversations as well as ideas shared.

St. Lucia's Day
We made paper plate wreathes and with the circle from the center we made star wands!
One of our student's grandmother visited and taught us all about St. Lucia's Day from her childhood in Sweden.
She lovingly dressed her granddaughter in the traditional St. Lucia attire, complete with the ring of candles!
While our very own St. Lucia passed out ginger cookies, her grandmother sang, in Swedish, a song that told the story of St. Lucia. All the children got to try the crown of candles on and most of them enjoyed the cookies. What a wonderful day!
Happy St. Lucia's Day everyone!
