Today has been a good day so far, I got to get out with the boys and finish up the spring season of their soccer league. The kids did really well with it being the first time they ever played soccer. My oldest hates soccer, I think the coming new year he will be on the swim team down the street. Austin my middle child loves the game, that is the one thing he constantly thinks about. I tell you he is always kicking that ball around the house and breaking something. From sun up to sun down that is one thing that he truly loves, is that soccer ball.
I’m glad that they got the chance to see what it feels like to follow through on something and hang in there to get the reward, with four boys doing practice twice a week and games. Man I almost gave up at once. But it was all worth the effort. I’ll be able to add that to my list of recreation that the kids participated in this year for home school.
However, that its not the only thing to talk about. I have been reading quite a couple of posts around the blogosphere since the weekend started.
One thing that really caught my attention was the the fact that even though you buy organic products such as chicken broth and other things. The government has the right not to label or change the name of the ingredient MSG if it has less than 50% MSG in the container. What a bunch a crock. This post has really helped me to be on guard now more when it comes to certain so called “Organic Items”. Read that post, very shocking. You can find that post No Msg over at the healthyhomeeconimist.
Recently I watched the movie The Vanishing Of The Bees” and it is really shocking that that state of Americas almonds, nuts and fruit trees are in danger of not being able to produce. Due to the fact that at an alarming rate tons of bees are dieing off and the government has no idea why! However the speculations are that it is due to a compound that certain bee keepers are feeding the bees and not honey. Along with the fact that pesticides in the environment and GMO’S a long lasting culprit to a lot of today’s environmental food chains as we speak.

She did an awesome job with breaking it down.
It’s critical that change happens now.
Loving the post over at homeschooling heart and mind where she talks about children that are homeschooled and not on grade level. It really helped give a fresh perspective on the issue of grading for me. The whole issue I began homeschooling in the first place was because my son has sensory issues and it caused him problems when it came to learning in the public school system as well as private. I love posts that show that grade level is not an problem, your child can be far ahead in one area, and still needing help in the others. If you have the option on homeschooling you would be able to work on those areas in more depth and take your time.
No worries. Good stuff.
How about you, how has your Saturday been so far?
