    I love everything about this post — the grasshopper and its message, your way with Orlando, the community Waldorf school (oh, how I wish we had one in our community — we were hoping to start one, but it never got off the ground, not yet anyway), how much Orlando is loving learning and exploring, an outdoor school, and how you have been gently led down this path together.

    I always learn so much from your posts.

    ME TOO! how awesome to receive that message in such a playful way. trust your instincts to know when to take that leap. i am so thankful for you that these tools – school, HANDLE, your intuition – are turning out to be just what you needed to help O unfold. sending big love!

    beautiful as always stacy. i like to move like a grasshopper too and like you, parent from the heart. thank you for sharing so much of your path here on this space. it helps me more than you know, shining your light for me to follow and know that there are others who think differently. what wonderful schools it sounds like you’ve found for your boy. i am pleased to hear of it. i wonder if i could make something like that happen for my children one day. even be the teacher. i would love to organize something like that where ever we end up one day for more years to come.

    I always learn something when I visit here. I hope you post again about Handle. Our son (10) learns differently and it’s a constant exploration to meet him where he is and take him where he needs to go. The gentle way you go about (and write about) parenting is an inspiration.

    Lovely! Wait. LEAP. Wait. LEAP. I am so delighted by this.

    And there is a spider walking across my desk as I write this… Because of your post I notice it. And look up its meaning.

    “Just as the Spider weaves a web, so too must we weave our own lives. The Spider symbol meaning here serves as a reminder that our choices construct our lives. When the Spider appears to us, it is a message to be mindful of the choices we are making.”

    Thank you for “seeing” the world around you.

    A-mazing Stacy, absolutely amazing. Ebb and flow, we grow, we learn so much from our children, for our children. Without them, I would have never found freedom, unconditional love, perspective, acceptance, and the permission to contract before we expand. So happy for you—-Waldorf, the outdoor school, and Grasshopper–what a wonderful totem….

    Hey Stacy,
    I was just thinking it had been a long time since I read a blog post of yours, and here is a delightful one. I am so pleased for you and Orlando that the schools and Handle have come into your lives. It sounds like a wonderful experience.

    Hi Stacy, What a lovely post. I have missed reading your writing and wisdom. Slowly, slowly, I am returning to the world of blogs. I used to write/reflect at Touching the Universe, but I have started a new blog, Just Like Play. Peace, Nicki
