I posted a blog over at Aussie Homeschool this week: Homeschool Expectations
Here are some of the articles / blogs that I read this week that either encouraged or challenged me:
The best idea I read all week: Do Nothing Days by Families with Purpose. We actually plan to do nothing between Christmas and New Year but I like the idea and am going to talk about this as a part of our family calendar for the new year. Maybe once every 3 months?
Reality Discipline – a reminder that the natural consequences to disobedience are a powerful tool in a parents hand.
In my constant search to find the technique that will help me overcome my lack of self control (LOL) when it comes to my overlong to-do list! These tips make so much sense – especially finding 3-5 key things that will move me towards my goals, and secondly not to list more than 6 things a day. The 5 minutes that will change your life (and I must add – only if you follow them!!)

And for a bit of fun here is a youtube link to a favourite Australian artist, Colin Buchanan at a Christmas Carols a few years back – he welcomes Santa to Australia – to my readers from overseas – listen carefully and you’ll learn a little about Australia! We love Colin!!
