Toddler stuff has been my focus for the month of October but I have had little snippets of time to do some online reading – here are a few links to the stuff that I earmarked recently

Preparing your Homeschooler for College – this article highlights some of the very points that I’ve been aware of as our older two have moved into study and adult life.  We don’t know what direction Naomi and Daniel will move into but we are working more intentionally on these skills – now that we have learnt from Josh and Jessica!

What do you consider essential life skills for your kids to learn – you may agree or disagree with this list, but it needs to be thought about.

I enjoy Pinterest – as do my kids – but I don’t get there often.  My girls and I have a “Done” board for us to pin the ideas we actually go forth and do in real life!  It isn’t as full as I’d like, but we get a lot of joy when we pin something in this board.  Heidi St John shares how to enjoy Pinterest and be guilt free

My older kids use Facebook, and they have talked about these other social networking apps.  I’ve looked into some, we’ve talked about others.  I found this summary of apps beyond facebook very helpful.  I believe we need to understand this aspect of our kids lives.  IF we don’t like it then we need to be informed as to why we don’t like it otherwise it is a sure way to alienate our kids hearts.

Angela has reminded me that it is time to think about our Christmas studies – especially with little kids.  Start preparing now so you can teach from your heart in December, instead of madly catching up with lesson plans and craft ideas on the hop.  Angathome shares her Jesse Tree symbols.

Be Intentional
