Update and Yay, the Stomach Flu is Dead!

Posted Wednesday, March 30, 2011 by Kally83
Oh my word! I was soooo prepared for Ostara this year. We even managed to make it through our family ritual and then I got blind-sided with a stomach flu. No need for details, but it sucked. But I seem to be on the mend now so here, finally, is my update from Ostara.

Most of my plans ended up falling through since I ended up feeling like total garbage but we DID manage to make it through the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Chocolate Rabbit I knew my Munchkin would enjoy this and boy was I right!


We usually try to limit his sugar intake so this was total heaven for him!Photobucket

Bean couldn't partake in the eating portion so he just smiled and played along with us.

Let's see....

First off, Willow at Confessions of a Country Witch is hosting a 15 Days of Welcoming the God blog party. I'm going to be a guest blogger on the 16th. She still has a few spots open for both guest posters and sponsors if anyone's interested!!

The Pooka Pages has their Ostara issue available. Make sure to go check it out, they have such awesome ideas!!

I'm on day 11 of the 40 Day Global Burn Inner Anger Sadhana. I never thought it would have such an impact on me, but for the first time...hmmmm...ever I think....I was able to go through a full day without raising my voice to my kids. I'm the short-tempered type, so this is definitely new to me!!

I attended my second circle with my Women's Spirituality Group and it was INCREDIBLE!!! It just happened to fall on International Women's Day so we celebrated being strong women with chants, tea and a little time with the Goddess Kuan Yin.

Preschool, Homeschool, No School, Oh My!

PhotobucketThe question of schooling our children has come up between Boo and I lately. For the past while, I've desperately wanted to try homeschooling. We decided that I would homeschool them through preschool and both junior and senior kindergarten. If I enjoy it and the kids seem to enjoy it, we'll consider going further after that.

I know there's going to be pressure from Boo's side of the family to put them in school because I'm not English/French bilingual (Boo's first language is French). I understand their concern, and have been looking into what activities, sports and classes I can put the boys in to ensure they spend time immersed in the language. Trying to find a basic, one morning a week, French preschool program has proven difficult but I'm keeping my eyes open. I've also joined our local homeschool support group and it looks like there's a French teacher amongst the crowd who is happy to teach a regular class to homeschool students. Boo has also said that if I can find him a good curriculum, he'll work with them on weekends as well.

I know we have a few years to go before the BIG decision comes (schooling before age 6 is optional as far as I can tell) but I'm already enjoying the prep that goes into it. Hopefully it lasts!!
