      I really enjoyed the Heart of Learning excerpts. This coming year will be our first with Oak Meadow and I'm so thrilled to be part of this community of caring and thoughtful parents.

      The article about homeschooling multiples was very helpful. I love concrete examples and real-life scenarios. I also love the idea for the flower pot compost!

      I really enjoyed the roundtable discussion on Permaculture - a vital part of our urban/rural city, Detroit. Good luck on the drawing everyone!

      I enjoyed the idea of turning a walk into a lesson. Anything in everyday life can be used this way, really.

      While I loved many of the articles, my favorite, by far, was The Joys of Authentic Engagement: Blending Curriculum and Community-Based Learning. That article really spoke to me. If I had to pick a runner up, it would be Fairy Houses, since my 2 year old daughter is currently obsessed with all things fairy!

      I love the recommendations around Fairy Houses, as our girls really live fairies and long to bring them closer to our home.

      I liked in particular the article "Families Lead The Way" because of the reference to "free range" living and learning. Having lived in Virginia and been subjected to (and having my children be subjected to) the public schools' rigid and limited view of education, I find this idea so refreshing and liberating!

      I especially like Liz Gardner's article on The Joys of Authentic Engagement. We are so distracted today with a constant input of information and instant gratification and I found the article encouraging in our choice to homeschool and be fully present in the moment and appreciate simplicity.

    To me, everything described above is simply good parenting when you are talking about a 3-4 yo. It is what other parents do though they don't call it "homeschool". Just an observation.
