I've been published! Well, sort of. I wrote an article for our local homeschool association and it was printed in the newsletter. "Entertaining Toddlers" was all about how to keep littles occupied while schooling the big kids. This month, I submitted another article - "Raising Little Mommies and Daddies". The theme is the value of teaching children to work. I've gotten a good response. This is the stuff that really makes me smile.
In other news:
I dove headlong into our homeschool association this year. I'm leading a book club, studying "A Charlotte Mason Companion" and I'm really looking forward to it. I will also be heading up a Keepers At Home group for a small group of homeschool mothers and daughters, including my own sweet girlies, Maya, Elena, and Chloe. I made the mistake of telling them all about it as soon as I had a group assembled. (I was so giddy about it, I just couldn't wait!) For days, they've been asking when they're going to "take that class where we learn to cook and sew and knit". I broke my 20 minute rule: Give kids 20 minutes notice for any fun activity, just in case.
