I go through spurts where I read blogs and spurts where I don’t. I have been perusing a few blogs I enjoy lately and thought I’d share some particularly good posts with you.
I often find it very hard to humbly apologize to my husband and children. The post, Half-Baked Apologies are Offensive at Marriage Works! was very helpful in outlining a great little formula for forming a meaningful apology.
Probably the best blog post on homeschooling I have ever read was written by Sherri at Large Family Mothering. Entitled, Homeschooling Sanity, it was a refreshing dose of some real experience from a mom of many. (Sherri has 15 children.) She looked at several different styles of homeschooling and discussed what worked for her family and what didn’t. Her post was very affirming to me as I have had many of the same experiences, though I have fewer than half the children she has!
Kimberly at Raising Olives makes a great case for why you might choose to take your younger family members along on errands, in spite of the inconvenience, in her post Choosing to Run Errands with Little Ones.
We’ve got a lovely weekend planned enjoying the third week of fresh strawberries from the Farmer’s Market, going on my regular date with my husband, sheep shearing at my parents’ farm and a having a bonfire with our Home Church on Sunday night.
Enjoy your weekends!
