  1. Thank you so much for the shout out! We were literally jumping around the kitchen when we heared it! A magic moment for us!!!
    We really enjoyed this weeks podcast. Ernie is very into electronics and science so it was great to hear your gift reviews.
    We decided not to do school (yet…?) for many of the reasons listed on your show. Plus I am an ex teacher and just I’m not prepared to expose them to ‘the system’ just yet.
    We would love to hear more about how you use Waldorf essentials. We’re probably not quite ready yet but it looks really fascinating and inspiring.
    Best wishes,
    Ernie, Betty and Sarah.

    • Hi guys
      Thank you. His wonderful to hear. I’m from a family of teachers and I think having the insiders view if the system made that decision to opt out of it easier.

      Waldorf is wonderful, particularly for the early years. Lots of magic, nature and fun. The kindergarten book from Waldorf essentials.com is well worth a read.

      We will be talking about this again in future podcasts.
