Zach used his toys to act out the story of the soldier who shared his cape with the poor man.
Then we gathered our friends together for a last minute lantern walk around the marina. Our tribe of friends range from public schooled to private schooled to radical unschooled to school-at-home types. But no other Waldorf-ish families. So we weren't sure how Z's little friends would react to making lanterns and telling the stories about keeping our inner lights shining in these dark days. Much to our delight, they loved it!
It made my inner light glow just hearing their laughter float above the firey lanterns as they danced in the night air. Thanks to all my other bloggy friends who post about Martinmas each year for the inspiration!
