This evening was Katherine’s lantern walk. At our old school, we would gather in a park and walk through the city-lit neighborhood, sharing with the greater community. At our new school, we walk in the darkness through the apple orchard and meadow. Two very different experiences, both beautiful and simple. I love the long line of lanterns, flickering about a foot off the ground as the preschool and kindergarten children walk along, singing the lantern song. This is one of my (many) favorite Waldorf traditions.
And then home to a warm dinner.
