I moved the forums around so that it was easier to get notified of new threads. I think. LOL Not certain it will help. But, post in "General Chat". :-)

Hope you can join us for the MNO on 2/3, or the monthly gathering on 2/18 or 2/22!

Hey, have you heard from Gina? Can Zachary come play tomorrow or Thursday? We'd love to see you all.

It was good to meet you at Pat's too. I'm sorry we didn't get a chance to chat longer! I think I remember you from before I moved here and I joined a couple Charlotte lists, to find out what's going on around here. I think it was you?! Well, this person was so welcoming I was hoping I would meet them in person! ;-) There were actually several of you nice folks on those lists! Anyway, I am sorry to have to miss the fondue party! ugh! I have to take my teen to a horse thing in Concord. If something happens and I can get back to Weddington before 4, I will be sure to crash the party, LOL!

Karen, we plan to see you at your seminar. Our daughter began with a Montessri education when she was 2 1/2. She is now 5 and in public school (yuck) I won't get started on that. But I am interested inhomeschooling. My husband is more apprehensive and not on board thus far. But, i wanted to know what type of homeschooling may be good for Annika. We do not have a lot of money to invest on materials etc.

Yes. We'd love for you to join us. It is 2-4pm, this Thursday. I posted in Events (menu tab at top of page) and started a thread in "Playgroups and Gatherings". http://xploringholisticalternatives.ning.com/events/holistic-playdate

Thanks for sharing! It's nice to know what's going on with everyone else. I'm still so new at all this homeschooling stuff, so I can only imagine what lies ahead!

Hey Karen! We are planning to go on Thursday. Not sure yet about the 22nd...we may be out of town. What are you all up to?

Yes, I am formerly Meliea Barber. Nice to "see" you.

I don't know about a "pencil". If you move the cursor over the text you just wrote (in a thread, not here), the post will highlight so that you can edit.

Profile Information

What does "holistic" mean to you?
It means understanding that one part of life affects another and one part of the body affects another and we can't always separate everything into itty bitty parts.
How long have you been interested in holistic living?
Since my children were born although I didn't think of it that way. But that was when I became more interested in healthier eating, breastfeeding, etc.
a little about me
I am a homeschool mom. That pretty much defines my current life. I am kind of spastically holistic, being very interested in some things and not at all in others and I will try to stay out of trouble on here.
What professional or business affiliations do you offer?
I am a Juiceplus distributor. I am not currently building a business though.

Bird Feeding Research Project

This came from a friend. It mentions God’s creation but I think the project is secular, so use it how it suits your family. It does indeed have a link for homeschoolers and it also mentions doing this as group projects potentially. I think anyone can participate as well, not just homeschoolers.


The following is from another loop.

There is an awesome research project going on each winter through

Cornell, and they need the help of people all… Continue
