Come Dance Around the Maypole!

After 3 days at the Waldorf School, Maisie got to join the celebration of May Day. How Beautiful! All the children made crowns out of willow limbs and wove spring flowers into them.

Then we all walked down to the park where the kids grabbed a piece of ribbon and danced around the Maypole, singing songs of Spring.

Already we have seen a difference in our girl...even her friends have noticed. We hit a small bump this morning, however, when she decided she wanted to return to the public school. I think that is mostly spurred on by the Daisy Scout Picnic last night, where she saw her old classmates again. But she has already made friends at her new school, and they are so open and so kind. Ahhhh--Spring!


  1. Oh, I'm so glad it's working out for your daughter! What a relief, eh?

    Changing schools can always be such a big decsion and you really worry whether you're doing the right thing. There's nothing better than having it confirmed that you made the right choice.

  2. Oh, it sounds like she's having so much fun!!

    I want to set something up soon - we've got the sniffles right now...or allergies, not sure which. :(

  3. I remember celebrating May Day growing up in Hawaii. It was always such a special time.

    It's good to hear your daughter is making new friends. They should help her thrive in her new school.

  4. Mary Anne, I'm so happy this whole transition is going well! How wonderful.

  5. Thanks everyone! Well, a whole week under her belt, now. And already there is a difference. After the little bump on Wednesday, all has been sunshine and flowers!

    The job is in the works. I now know the perameters, less than I had hoped for, but I'm going for it anyway. It's just such a great place to be. But, I will still have to teach a course at the college and beg for financial assistance.

    Leigh Ann -- Let's get together soon. I think I'm getting your mail, now. I'll check my spam box again, just in case.

    Happy May!

  6. Good news! So glad for your daughter and you. funny, I'd been thinking about dancing around the maypole and wondered if anybody still did that -- or much less knew about it. Hope your daughter continues to thrive at her new school.
