Happy October! Here are a few links to love and enjoy:
First of all, my dear friend Andrea has a new blog: http://solrevel.wordpress.com/2013/10/02/tuning-in/. She wrote that wonderful homeschooling manifesto as a guest post for this blog if you would like to re-read it! http://theparentingpassageway.com/2013/04/17/guest-post-a-homeschooling-manifesto/
http://downtoearthmother.com/2013/09/23/hormone-disrupting-chemicals/ I don’t normally post about nutrition or holistic health issues here as there are so many blogs that cover this area beautifully, but this article is an important one. Starting with small steps can make it all less overwhelming if you have lots of changes to make!
