      There was so much great stuff, but I most enjoyed the excerpts from Heart of Learning. Exactly what I needed to read right now.

      I liked the article on Education for Sustainability. One huge advantage of homeschooling/unschooling is that young people can see economy, equity and environment from a true-to-life perspective, being out and about in the world with their family. Therefore they are much more likely to have a realistic view of these things than children who are forced to spend 6 hours every day with an artificial peer group (in my opinion .

      I enjoyed the article on permaculture in action. It's important to find a balance.

      I found the Homeschooling Multiples article to be pretty helpful. I have been wondering how to give both my boys the attention they need throughout the day, and there are some great ideas. My favorite is having the older one teach the younger one something. What a great way to learn patience, and for the older one to really know something well enough to teach it.

      I enjoyed reading "Sustaining the Flame of the Ancients". Written by a 17 year old who used the Oak Meadow Latin curriculum, it made a great case for studying Latin and homeschooling (I was impressed that a high school kid could write with such a mature voice).

      I liked the article on "Simple, Sustainable Living." Many of the ideas are a great way to build community as well and remind me to relax and enjoy the ride. I love that Oak Meadow's curriculum allows for children to spend a lot of time outdoors learning through nature!
