This time of year, one of our favorite things to do is play by the creek in the woods. Today, the Cedar Ring mamas packed our babies on our backs and headed to the “Magic Lagoon” with our children.
The boys run ahead and arrive first…
And then JUMP IN!
The Magic Lagoon is a sweet spot with a rocky ledge, small waterfall, a few feet of water to splash around in, and plenty of fallen logs to sit on or climb. It’s enclosed by the woods- nice and shady- and tucked away from the world.
We build a small fairy lagoon on the rocky ledge…
Where a wee boat made of bark, twig, and leaf awaits…
We build rock towers…
And as we turn the rocks, we are sometimes lucky enough to find a crawdad!
Of course, toads are welcome finds, too!
And as the children play, I sit and soak it all in. My cup is filled. And so is my little one’s, as she nurses to sleep with the waterfall lulling her.
These are the moments I will always remember.
Speaking of remembering, do you remember we promised more giveaways for the Waldorf Connection Expo? Our second giveaway is a lovely rainbow element from Grimm’s Spiel und Holz.
Cedar Ring Circle Waldorf Co-op will be ordering from Grimm’s soon- orders are due by the 15th of June (all other manufacturer orders are due end of the month, but shipping from Germany takes longer and we want everything to arrive at the same time to keep our eco-footprint and shipping costs down). As always, members receive a promo code for a private discount on Grimm’s. We are also offering new members a $5 credit towards your first order when you join the co-op by June 28th! Just use the code EXPO when you join and your account will be authorized and loaded up with the credit within 24 hours.
For a chance to win the rainbow element, simply browse the Cedar Ring Circle co-op catalog and leave a comment telling us something you like. And keep checking back- there will be three more giveaways announced this weekend!!! We’ll be adding quite a few more Grimm’s items before the 15th (including birthday ring number decorations), so be sure to check back and see what’s new at Cedar Ring Circle, too!
Congratulations, Hannah! You win the rainbow element.
