A tradition from waldorf tradition that we are continuing is the the "Helper of the Day". This person prepares the snack and sets the table and serves out the food to all the children. They ask what each person wants, and serves them before serving themselves. They also get to blow out the candle if we're having one. B loves to be the helper. He loves to come in and help me cook whenever I will let him.
While in NYC B learned to be very independent in new situations. He learned to slide down a fire pole and scale any playground equipment.
He learned to ride with training wheels on this rad bike from the cousins. This reminds me I need to get the training wheels put onto one of our bikes here at home.
