Growing and Growing....

Syrendell is growing!  Our family and our business are blossoming this year, and we feel very fortunate. 

Baby #4 is due early October.  With each baby, Jennifer's belly seems to pop out earlier! 



















Joey is ending her Grade 6 year with Medieval Games (variety of Waldorf schools participate) and camping at Cache Creek.  She's almost as tall as Mommy!


















Wilson is finishing up Grade 1, reading, writing and loving math.  He grew out of his indoor shoes, so he and Mommy made a new pair by wetfelting wool.  He's excited about the baby!

























The baby kittens are almost full grown.  They still love to hang out with their mom. 


















Ricky has grown this year in grade 8 at Davis Waldorf School.  He did a 20-minute presentation on the clarinet, including performing his own composition.  To end the year, his class went to Kroka wilderness camp in New Hampshire and visited colonial sites in Boston, MA.













Our summer garden is planted, and growing!  Corn, peas, beans, pumpkins, watermelon, cantaloupe, various squash, tomatoes, onions, beets, radishes, daikon, rutabaga, potatoes, carrots, bell peppers, hot peppers, tomatillos, strawberries, cucumbers, and a variety of herbs. 















Our consulting services, workshops, and private lessons are expanding at Syrendell!  We thoroughly enjoy our adventures with homeschoolers, Waldorf schoolers, and others who want to learn more about fiber arts, art, aromatherapy and music.  eCourses in crocheting and Anthroposophy coming soon through Little Acorn Learning!















New patterns, eBooks, handwork supplies and handspun yarns are in the making for the Etsy shop.  The baby is inspiring Jennifer to create some Tunisian baby clothes and patterns, as well as publish the 6-years-in-the-making mothering meditations eBook.  The family is also busy crochetng, knitting and sewing baby toys and clothes!  Grandma knitted the white hats, and Wilson knitted the bear and cat.















Growth and change are all a part of life...and we are enjoying it!  Thank you for reading our blog and joining us on Facebook.

You are so beautiful Jennifer! I wish I felt better....at 15 weeks, I am still very sick. :( I haven't really popped yet, I have a small belly. But I am starting to feel the uterus now just below my belly button. It's all very exciting!

I love seeing the updates about your family. I can't wait to see your new little one!!!! :) Blessings to you~
