I'm prepping for the holidays and first up are some batches of healthy, frugal chicken broth. But why would I use a whole onion or celery stalk when I have all those veggie scraps in my freezer?

#1: “children who have positive offline relationships with their parents are more likely to navigate the web in a sensible way,”
#2: “supportive and enabling parenting has a more positive impact than restricting or monitoring internet use,”
#3: “teenagers left to self-regulate their internet and social media use are more likely to teach themselves new skills online and maintain positive online relationships,”

Last week's reading. One of the main focuses in our home is reading. Jay and I lead by example and set aside a little time to read each day. We read together as a family, and we set aside large chunks of time for individual reading. Our kids are all head-over-heels in love with books. We don't have any required reading nor do we put restrictions or rules on reading level. We do help the kids choose age-appropriate books and content and we preview anything we are not sure about. 

Our 4yo isn't reading yet, but his appetite for books is whet by visually interesting picture books, graphic novels, comics, listening to audio books, and being a part of family reading time.

We also haven't done any formal reading curriculum except with our oldest (who read at age 4 with Abeka curriculum).

When Mary Pride was asked, "how do you do it all?" - this was her answer: “The key is … laziness! The best way to teach is to not have to teach at all. Ideally, our children should learn how to learn and begin to teach themselves.”

"What if a child, like mine, has abilities that are far greater than the parent expects of them? What if they have talents that show in ages that are unexpected? What if the child is asking, repeatedly, for more and more and more, but the parent just continuously denies them the opportunities to learn and grow beyond where the parent expects them to be? Wouldn’t that be, perhaps, stifling?"

Some great thoughts from +Renee Aleshire Brown about gifted education and her review of Dumbing Down America.

Geography bee! On Monday our local homeschool group hosted a fun geography fair/bee and my kids went full force in making their presentations. We made chin chin to represent Nigeria and kimbap to celebrate South Korea. There was a great turnout and we had so much fun! Believe it or not this was our first geography shindig.

Homeschooling - when you absolutely need to name your paper bag puppet Gandalf, but you're four and you can't spell yet. I wrote it down for him and he copied the letters.

I've built a Superfriends deck (America/Jeskai plus splash green for Ajani) that is pretty fun to play. It basically runs your opponent out of answers and then wins with craziness. Brimaz swinging as a 6/7? Jace and Ajani digging through your deck? Chandra letting you play an extra card per turn?

Another #Oklahoma  field trip! Right in the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge is the location of the longest running Easter pageant (at least in the US). The Holy City of the Wichitas was constructed of native stone in the 1920's and 30's and is free to tour.

Obviously it wasn't Easter time - but it still made for some great photo ops!

Found this at the creek last week. We weren't sure what it was - some sort of slug? Leech? It was in the mud on the bank. Southern Oklahoma if that makes any difference.

So let's talk about mental leaps. Oldest is a child that doesn't learn through slow repetition over time. In fact, that kind of instruction drives her nuts and really turns her off to a subject. Over the years, I've realized that she needs time to play and explore a topic. Then when she is developmentally ready, she makes a huge leap in her understanding and application. For example, we ditched the writing and grammar curriculum a long time ago because it was our main struggle. Then one day, seemingly out of the blue, she wanted to write - a novel. She has written a novella for NaNoWriMo every year since she was 11 (she will be 14 this year) and each year her skills gets amazingly better despite not having any formal instruction.

Does anyone else have similar experiences? How to you encourage them to explore topics?

Short stories are the perfect way to introduce middle schoolers to classic literature. They are - well - short! Yet they often deal with heavy themes. And these two stories by O. Henry provide plenty of examples of hyperbole, understatement, and irony.

Plus - they are free to read and listen because they are in the public domain!

When we had to live without a printer (and most of our other stuff) for 4 months I was glad that Evernote synchronized my notes across all our devices. Smartphone? Yes! Ipod/Iphone/Ipad? Yep. Android tablet? Yesiree. Laptop? Yeppers!

Some encouragement for all homeschoolers and mommas!

"Think about what makes you happy, what scares you, what makes you want to throw your shoes, what makes you feel soft and safe on the inside.

Think about the power you have to make the year ahead good and positive.

Don’t worry about what other people are doing. Who knows — maybe their thing is being miserable?

But yours doesn’t have to be."

The Ferris Bueler theory that I have heard is that Cameron was his sickly, nerdy friend who really died and Bueler hasn't gotten over his death. Makes sense because Cameron is never seen by any adults.
