Starting Traditions - a Seasonal Table
It can seem a little silly starting traditions so young. He won't remember and cannot take part in most activities aside from being present and watching. I want to start now anyway so it is something that has always been so for him. I thrived on rhythm and traditions growing up, and still love them as an adult. One of these traditions I wanted to start is a seasonal table, or nature table. I've seen these most often within Waldorf families, and it's a way to celebrate the season by being aware of what is happening around us, being present in the rhythm of the seasons, and to bring elements inside. This post is a little late coming as the Fall season is on its way out and these pictures were taken back when it was in full swing.
As well as being a fun tradition and ever changing display, I think it's a great starting off point for many activities and learning opportunities. It is something that Josh will be able to contribute to as much as he likes as he grows. I cannot wait to start new traditions with him and continue the old with him now involved.
