My attention these last couple of weeks has been on my kids' school choices, learning styles, "whole kid" needs…so many variables to consider as we decide what their schooling will look like next year. The separation between a kid's "learning needs" and "general needs" is quite false, so making school decisions isn't as simple as deciding on one's preferred educational setup. It's got my head in a jumble, but I'm making progress. Thank you for talking with me about it here.
But it's the weekend! Time for relaxation and play! If you find yourself with a bit of downtime, here's an easy-going look at recent happenings at Parent Hacks:
Incredible reuse idea from Ohdeedoh, with even more great ideas from Parenthacker in the comments.
If you're considering a theme park vacation this summer, you might find my recap helpful.
Delightful meal idea from Feed Our Families.
While the Amazon deal is over, I urge everyone to read the resulting conversation in the comments. The question: is a DIY will really a good idea?
What's been keeping me offline a lot these days. The conversation in the comments may be more mind-blowing than the video of Sir Ken Robinson's incredible talk.
A brilliant foodie hack!
Totally brilliant road trip hack which we need to talk about some more next week.
Thank you all for your wisdom and warm fuzzies this week. Have a wonderful weekend.
