Breaking a “rule of awesome bloggers” to say I’m sorry for my obvious lack of blogging lately. All my energy has gone towards getting the kids through the last few weeks of their school year, and preparing my oldest for her first overnight trip to a youth conference. She has multiple, severe food allergies, so it was a leap of faith for all of us!
In other blogging news, I was wondering if any of my (4) readers would like me to set up a Facebook page for the blog. One, because I often have only a blurbs worth of words to share, or a random link I think is relevant, and two, because I know some people like to get all their info in one place and often “subscribe” to blogs by liking them on Facebook. There is a downside to that, however, in that recently Facebook has greatly reduced the reach of any particular page — I have a page with 35 likes and when I share something Facebook tells me it went to sometimes as few as 2 people! So the rest missed out on my wonderfully intelligent banter, LOL! Anyway, I’d love to hear what you think (and may do it anyway). 😉
Now on to the links:
Here is an interesting list of Highly Sensitive People Subtypes: The HSP Subcultures, Definitions, Tasks & Challenges. I think I can fit in with many of them! What about you?
Secrets from Charlotte Mason on Scheduling for Peace at Afterthoughts. I will add, after several discussions around the blogosphere this week, and 12 years of my own homeschooling…don’t cut back on the math in your schedule for “peace”. Cut somewhere else. IMHO, if there is a homeschooling hill to die on, make it this one, if you want your kids to be up to speed for college. If not, carry on. 🙂
Charlotte Mason Teaching Tuesdays: See That He Knows at Wildflowers and Marbles. I wouldn’t say I’m a Charlotte Mason homeschooler, but many of Miss Mason’s ideas work well with engendering peace in the home, and we HSPs know that peace is necessary for doing more than flat out survival. I love the idea of allowing the child do make his own connections – we present, they connect.
I hope to push through this week and get the next post up in my HSP/Homeschooling Styles series, currently languishing in the drafts folder. At least it has good company in there!
Hope you all have a wonderful week!
