Happy first day of March ...

I am so ready for Spring ...
My plan for this day was to start talking about planting ... garlic is sprouting ...

 I am so excited to get my garden ready for 'veggie season';
then, I read an amazing book that I really want to share.
Where to begin?
I received a book in the mail the other day ... and got up at 4 am so I could read it before starting my day.
That was five days ago, and it is still on my heart's mind constantly.Thank you, Rita.

My "Auto" Biography by Rita Walsh

Rita and I grew up in the same neighborhood in Hingham, Massachusetts ... many years ago. Reading her beautiful book took me back to 'the neighborhood' ... to the kids, the fams, the connections, the neighborhood togetherness. Her book is, clearly, deeper than our neighborhood antics ... though it brought me back to, and through, so much.
It makes me revisit writing a biography of sorts ... hmmmm ... maybe.

Rita exposes her heart and shares in a way that we can all relate to. If you would like to read her beautiful [heart wrenching] story - contact her at ritamama23@yahoo.com 

There are many things happening around here ... registration for summertime thinking camp - which I am so excited about ... the kids so love being in the woods, exploring nature, building, creating, and so much more. This year, I am going to stretch myself [i think] and we just may do some fishing ... eeeek ... I can do this, right?
If you know anyone who would love for their child to have a wonderful camp experience, let them know about Academic Illumination Camp ... always learning fun!

much more to come ... hope everyone is enjoying a beautiful first day of March.
Until tomorrow xxoo

It's monday xxoo

Happy New Year!

I've been writing 'my babblings' for  days ... I thought it was to share. I realized this morning that it was just my therapy. I may share some in the days to come.
I spewed to you all, a bit ago, about a school that keeps me up at night.
This morning I awoke with the knowingness, that as parents, we are holding the life keys.
We trust - we hope - that the learning facility in which we entrust our little hearts will honor them and envelope them as they embark on their educational journey. xxoo

I am writing a series of educational articles - and I really need/want your heart-felt responses, please.

All children are supposed to go to school (although homeschooling is a delightful option) - if your child was not being honored for the person they are (and all they will be) would you stay and hope for the best? Or change it up today? And why? Thank you xxoo

Until tomorrow xxoo
