Honestly, I loved the book. I have been trying to get some type of rhythm down for my family, which is not an easy task when you have two babes. But, I think that I am finally realizing that it can't be so stringent, it has to be relaxed and needs to go with the flow. It is easy to go with the flow in July or August, but come January when we are inside all the time, well that is when I seem to struggle a little more.
The Rhythm of Family has some AMAZING craft ideas that I am hoping to get started on in the next couple of weeks. Definitely some Christmas ideas in this beautiful book. There is also a bread recipe that I want to try. I have my standby bread recipe that I make weekly, but this one looks a bit heartier. If you are looking for a really heart felt book with some great ideas on how to have your life centered more around nature as a family, I definitely recommend it! In fact, even if you only like being inside the house all day long, I still recommend it. The words that Amanda Blake Soule, and Stephen Soule have written are beautiful reminders of how enjoyable life really is, once you look beyond all the pressing matters that seem to take up a large percentage of your attention...or maybe that is my attention. A good reminder to be in the moment!
