New day, new name & new intentions

Today the boys decided that they wanted to head to the library after dropping me off at work. They are excited about the summer reading programs and S7 says he is determined to read 100 books this summer! They got to watch the stage being built for this weekend's Free Press Summer Fest. I was told by my husband that it is a sweet setup. Later they did an art project suggested by dear dad to describe the Ancillary sphere downtown. They all turned out some nice pieces of artwork.

As non-public schoolers, the subject of school names comes up when you are filling out different forms, newsletters, etc. We have kicked around a lot of things with the boys and I have my personal favorite, "the wildcrafting school of overstanding". Even if everyone decides on a different name, I think I'll stick with this one for the blog.

Every day we should get up, thank the creator, greet the sun and walk with positive intentions. This can be easier said than done, but must be a necessary step in our personal development. We have been talking to the boys about speaking with intention as the spoken word is powerful. You can't take back words once they have left your lips no matter how much you may wish you could. Rastafarians speak Ital and it is a perfect example of trying to leave negative words behind with an "overstanding" of a situation as opposed to an understanding. So I must think before I speak and help teach the boys to do the same.
