This real estate agent who was a friend of a friend kept pestering us to look at this house and we had thought about a house. Maybe Connie family had a lot of bedrooms and stuff for. Her all her siblings and stuff to grand, and this sounds was not for rent the. We stopped in there on the way to the airport. And we spent an hour or two wandering through this overgrown. Kona but with this beautiful. Japanese Architecture. D- By Dope. growers. Beautiful, house of not dancing but. I mean. Just a wonderful I am we We. Fell in love and. Put an offer on it we closed. Three days we were married. So we LE- honeymoon dare and. Hawaiian music began to take its Its effect on me. So. It was there when the house burned down. We had another house and it was in Kona and it turned out there was a Waldorf school. We were getting ready to spend our lives driving our son from point Reyes Hill dewilder school in. Lucas. Valley. and. Good Lord there was we've done a Waldorf kindergarten ten minutes from our house and we wow, okay. We're gonNA live in Conan. Because really wanting to come back.

After we'd left for we left in two thousand six. Connie's family was here in South Carolina, and she wanted some time with them. But it became a a public school. So that, all the kids. The underprivileged kids in. Up in Calicut. Got US a school. To go to I mean it's got a waiting list off the charts but because it is still Waldorf. Inspired Curriculum I. Guess He just say the word God or something it's not the Waldorf is. Well spiritual thing but it's not a religion or anything it's It's head heart and hands. You know. When you teach a kid like that. If you teach him, he's drawn to what resonates in his heart or her and. that. MAKES AVID students. I really fell in love with Waldorf Education. That school is thriving there. Now you know had. Maybe. Forty kids in the kindergarten. For five hundred now they they had their own out organic farm. This forty acres that. The Connie Baugh and we built a school on. And So this place for a form that was, and that was part of the master plan that there be an organic farm and then the kids learn about 'cause Waldorf they teach how to gross stuff.
