I read an excellent post the other day on SimpleHomeschool.net about homeschooling through a crisis. Quite timely for me, since my family is definitely going through a difficult time right now, with a high-risk pregnancy, my upcoming hospitalization, and an uncertain future for the baby (depending on how early he arrives, we’re looking at potentially weeks in the NICU).
One thing that’s kept us all sane during this time is my life philosophy of keeping it simple. (You know what I’ve always found interesting? Minimalism is gaining traction as a lifestyle, but it’s as old as the hills. Think about it: every major religion emphasizes simplicity and the eschewing of unnecessary possessions. That’s no coincidence.)
