Advent has begun and it is the third year we are reading through The Light in the Lantern. It is a waldorf inspired book with an imagined story for each day of advent about Mary and Joseph's journey to Bethlehem. I love it so much. I particularly love that it shows all of creation waiting for the saviour to come and usher in the kingdom of God. The first week is based on the mineral kingdom, so we've been collecting river pebbles, cracking geods and singing about ice. There will be more rock searching this week and, as we are studying geology this month, we're planning a trip to the Natural History Museum at the end of the week.
I don't have our Jesse tree ornaments as they are in storage, so we're just doing the Light in the Lantern this year. If you are interested in the book, ordering directly from Wynstone press in the UK is the most cost efficient way to get a copy (it is insanely expensive on Amazon.)
