Children Call For Change

My daughter started 7th grade last week. There is such a great change in who she is now compared to last year. She and her peers are so much more aware of the world around them. They are beginning to question everything, and want to know why. They are paying attention to politics, and creating sustainable ideas to change the environment. I just love hearing about their ideas. I think that they are so much more conscious than we ever were. They are simply amazing. However, this does leave adults… Continue

Co-Creative Parenting

I happened to mention to a few friends, that I would love to move back to NY, how I discussed the idea of moving with my daughter, and she is onboard with the decision. I received a look of surprise that was both amusing and unnerving. Did I say something wrong? “But, you are the parent”, was the response that I received. Yes, I am the parent, but I believe in co-creation. I cannot create something that involves another human being that is capable of making choices, and expect a good outcome… Continue

The Possible Horrors of Halloween

Due to its history, Halloween has had a close relationship with the metaphysical. It has its roots in an ancient Celtic festival, Samhain, meaning Summer’s End. The festival was all about the death of summer and the beginning of the Celtic New Year. The world of living and the world of the dead were believed to have merged on this night. The spirits of the dead supposedly returned to the earth and this made it easier for Celtic priests to predict the future. Many of our current Halloween… Continue

New Day Camp Near Rock Hill/Fort Mill

Greetings All,

For some of you with young children (13 and under) looking for summertime day camp activities in the Rock Hill/Fort Mill area, you need to know about a new 150 acre island on the coast of Rock Hill (Catawba River) called Camp Canaan. In the world of day camp dollars, this incredible place is a steal at $175/week per child (which works out to paying $4.00/hour for daycare). Anyway, please access the link below for a radio broadcast which showcases the camp and also the… Continue

Catholic Church & religious exemption to vaccines

If you have been turned down by local Catholic schools because your child has not had the "required" vaccines, please contact Jill Conner at jillconner@earthlink.net. She is working to get the local Catholic schools to accept the state-sanctioned religious exemption. Charlotte is one of only a few places in the US that does not accept a rel. ex.

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.

Kale in english muffins, yay!

Today, Jake was making bread and asked me if I wanted him to add any extra grains or healthy stuff. I suggested flaxseed meal, so that went in. Then amazingly he suggested adding pureed kale! This is coming from the same man who looked at his plate with disdain the first time I served kale last year. So he whipped up a cup of pureed kale and added it to the dough. Tonight he used some of the dough to make english muffins. I'm curious to the kids' reactions when they are served english muffins… Continue

Recycling is bad?

My 6 year old told me the other day that "recycling isn't good for the environment". That comment was pretty much blasphemy in our household since we are avid recyclers. I asked her what she meant. She elaborated by saying, " well, in order to recycle you need to use a lot of water to clean the stuff and then trucks have to use gas to take the stuff to be recycled, and then you use electricity to run the machines that recycle the stuff". I agreed with her. She went on "but… Continue
