Here We Flow Again :)

“Adapt or perish, now as ever, is nature’s inexorable imperative.” H.G. Wells My life, as with all our lives, is an inexhaustible series of opportunities to adapt, to shift with the callings of spirit, flow with what the world lays before me. How we roll determines whether we struggle and strain, or surrender. I choose […]

Beauty to Stir the Soul

If I could teach my children just one simple, yet profound thing in this life it would be… To see the world about them as a beautiful miracle unfolding. This trip to California has been many things, but above all it has been about reveling in the splendid beauty of this place… To stroll, to […]

Mesmerize Them To Learn

It is a delight beyond words to watch your children’s minds and hearts alight, their desire to learn spark and ignite before your very eyes. We would do anything to provide this sweet and life-altering experience for them, wouldn’t we? Yes, oh yes. In LifeSchooling our boys it is my responsibility and my joy to […]

School in Powerful Snip-Its

Today, school was a blast… Lifeschool that is. Our curriculum consisted of swimming lessons, math and gym. The learning in our two-on-one classroom was second to none, seriously… Liam learned to float, solo… Nathaniel took it out for spin and came super close. Liam did a front somersault under water. Nathaniel learned the bounce pass […]

Who Knew? Finger Knitting 4 Peace

Gotta say, never had a real burning desire to learn how to knit. I mean, one day, maybe. Because I love those beautiful wool sweaters those Tibetans weave magically for cool fashion and mountain-air warmth. But Finger Knitting? Never heard of it. Until I homeschooled and then, wham, it’s everywhere. The idea of a child […]

Hours passed like minutes and the creative flow spread from Daddy to son. The audience engaged in riffs and righteous […]

From Blankie to White Belt – Our Lil Man Embraces the Art

I am in awe tonight. Just moments ago, it seems, I held my precious first born cradled in my arms. He gazed into my soul and I was born anew. I have never, will never, be the same again. Somehow I thought against all logic that he would be my baby forever. I know you […]

Fill Up Your Heart. Don’t Try To Be Something Your Not

“We all grow up and someday we’ll say good bye. So shine your light while you still got one. Make the most of what you got. Don’t waste time trying to be something your not. Fill up your head, fill up your heart and take your shot. Don’t waste time trying to be something your […]

I SEE You ~ 10 Centering Tips to Bring You Home

“We dance round in a ring and suppose, But the secret sits in the middle and knows.” Robert Frost If we look within, really look within, we all know we want to live Centered lives, lives in which we respond versus react, think before we speak, measure the outcome before we march.  Sometimes we are […]

Those Who Play Together, Stay Together … And Linger Longer.

“An active mind cannot exist in an inactive body.” General George S. Patton We can desire expansion of thought, learning, ideas, understanding, joy and expression of self for our children (for ourselves), but none of this can fully take place without caring for the temple in which we reside, our bodies. And so as we […]
