      I found the Homeschooling Multiples very informative! I am currently using Oak Meadow kindergarten curriculum and next year I will be needing the first grade curriculum and will be using the kindergarten curriculum again for my youngest (two boys that will be 4 and 6). It always helps to hear how other people manage their homeschooling!

      I enjoyed the article entitled, "The Joys of Authentic Engagement". I constantly have to remind myself to be present in all our activities. Thanks for the giveaway! I'd love to win.

      I love the Nature and Story. The boy in the article sounds like my son.

      I enjoyed the Heart of Learning and reading about child led activities. We are new to homeschooling and considering Oak Meadow.

      The Fairy Garden article was our favorite... We cleared an area along our fence line, underneath overgrown grape vines and Forsythia bushes, creating an area underneath the bushes/vines to play (as well as tunnels to exit). A few fairy statues, wind chimes, cut logs for seats, and our little boy has his own life size "fairy house".

      I liked the article "Educating for the Future." I feel like we forget to include all 3 of those things when teaching about sustainability. We usually just focus on the environment part of it. I enjoyed this whole issue really.

      I found Facebook Rewind: Homeschooling Multiples to be very informative!! I am currently using Oak Meadow Kindergarten curriculum and will be needing the First Grade curriculum for this next year. I am homeschooling my two boys so it is nice to hear how other families are managing their Homeschooling!

      I liked the practical tips for simple living. I feel a lot of people want to get back to their roots and a simpler way of eating and living so it rang really true for me.

      I enjoyed the article 'The Joys of Authentic Engagement'. We have used eclectic methods of hsing for 6 years and then tried the virtual online school for the past 2 years. It just seemed too forced. I am eager to get back to a curriculum that integrates into our daily lives better and Oak Meadow seems like a great one to try. I would love to win this!
