The Tide Turns Again, or Great Importance

I stopped writing when our lives had fallen into a rhythm of living, loving, and learning, with no clear demarcations for schooling. I figured I would write about our lives on Red Dirt Life, and anything related to learning would be there. Slowly, however, the little comments have been winding their way to me in email and on message boards, the overarching message being "We miss your blog."

Here we are, at the start of a new year, with my boys clamoring for focused "school" work. Since I like to oblige them, we will once again be moving back to lessons. And since I like to oblige my readers, I'll be writing about it.

For those who don't remember, when we do lessons we mostly use the Enki Education philosophy and methodology. To this I add specific programs that work best for my boys as individuals. Enki is a fantastic holistic homeschooling curriculum. It works for all types of families; those who closely follow a school-at-home model (although it is pretty adventurous and not like Calvert of K-12), and those who tidal school or mostly unschool with an underlying holistic philosophy.

I spent a lot of time last year exploring some great concepts in home education, and I hope to share them with you here.

(The title change? I don't know. I'm going to keep messing with it.)

Welcome back! :) There are just not nearly enough Enki bloggers in the world, I enjoy reading what I can find.

Thanks! It will probably be next week before I get specifically back into Enki.
