The rainbow loom obsession continues. The girls are so creative at making all kinds of things from Strawberry Shortcake characters to sandals.
We are currently reading Jo’s Boys, the fourth book in the Little Women series by Louisa May Alcott.
I turned twenty-six on Wednesday and got some lovely gifts from my family who love me very much. Some yellow roses (from my love), a butterfly necklace (from Kesa), a butterfly mirror (from my mom), some inspirational wall hangings and a Willow Tree figurine of a mother and daughter. I was quite spoiled.
Craig was sick with a fever for a while and took some time off of work, which was nice because he really bonded with Serafina. Serafina was sick too, so I snapped a picture of them on the couch together, which I though was so sweet to see.
We are finishing up our study on Music Theory. Autumn is now in piano lessons and is taking tap dance solo lessons, and tap and jazz dance.
I made a butterfly painting for Serafina’s room. We decorated her room with butterfly wall stickers too.
I have been having some new recipe inspiration. Homemade Chunky Vegetable Pasta Sauce, Lemon Berry pancakes, Lime Coconut Granola, Orange Pineapple Ginger Tofu, and Stevia-Sweetened Banana Berry Muffins.
After taking a two month break from yoga, I have returned to it and it feels so good! Craig has started up again too and there is just such a more peaceful energy in our home when we are both practicing. I wish I had people to share my love of healthy eating and exercise with. I fell away from those passions of mine over the past two months after feeling confused about Serafina and listening to what different therapies people recommended, instead of following my intuition and staying aware of the spiritual side of autism.
I got off track for a while and things didn’t feel right. Now I am ready to return to my intuitive way of living, enjoying life to the fullest and being the happiest and healthiest that I can be. I do not want to hide who I am from the world, but shine my light and share my life. I have been torn about what to do and where to blog because a lot of people I know in person have strong judgements on our spiritual views, dietary choices, and our Waldorf-inspired homeschooling method. I feel safe in this space and free to be myself here. I want a place where I can connect to and inspire others and feel free to share who I am.
I hope that you all have a great weekend!
