Hi, all! Mandi here. I know you haven’t heard much from me lately. Rest assured that I have been busy behind the scenes: mostly dealing with work-at-home issues and preparing for the newest “student” in our school, who will be joining us sometime around mid-January of next year. I’ve also been busy with some side projects, one of which I wanted to share here.
I am one of eight moms who contributes to The Connected Mom, “a natural parenting site that focuses on fostering positive connections with our children, our communities, our planet, and each other.” I found that the blog reflects many of our views on parenting and family. Normally, I don’t like to get into parenting too much here, except where it overlaps with education. My interest in education led to a great opportunity to write for a blog series at the Connected Mom called Sunday School. The name might throw you at first, but it has nothing to do with cutesy Bible stories or flannel boards. It’s simply a digest of activities for a variety of ages that center around a certain theme each week. Since it’s education-related, I’ve decided to link my posts here.
This week’s activities center around autumn: from apples, to pumpkins, to fall leaves. A couple of these science experiments look really fun! I think we’ll be trying them out ourselves within the next few weeks.
If you’re interested in parenting–especially natural/attachment type parenting–you might want to check out some of the other posts as well. The mom contributors have great insights to share!
