We have had an overabundance of tomatoes this year from the garden. We’ve given them away, and eaten them in salads, on burgers, straight from the garden with a little salt and pepper (Mmm…) and we still haven’t been able to eat them as fast as they are ripening. So I decided it was time [...]
I don’t know how to do this… How do I keep the kids and myself connected and part of the world, when M is so unstable that taking him out means putting us (and everyone else) through all the difficult behaviors his psychosis brings with it? How do I find the supports we need to [...]

I know homeschooling isn’t for everyone, but I do count my blessings every day for being able to teach my kids at home and know, without question, that [...]
Things here are still very unsettled, and M is still very unstable. I’m sorry I haven’t been keeping up well with other people’s blogs (or my own!). I’ve been searching for more support for M and might have actually found something! (I write about it later, when I know more what’s going on) As soon [...]
