Too much to blog about today…

And it is stretching my left-brainedness…you see I want each post to have a general focus (makes more sense for categorizing and if I want to refer back to it…) and this one is going to be all over the place!

First off, Marjorie had just an awesome, awesome post up over at Life Without School: How Much Is Enough. I have lots I want to say, but don’t have the time right now. I share her confusion and her sympathy for the “reluctant reader” she witnessed at the library. I really want to find some time to explore this a bit further.

JoVE posted about how she played around a bit with taking pictures. Looks like she had a lot of fun. I know that I have been. I also wanted to pass on a good resource for learning more about photography. Digital Photography School is a great blog for amateur photographers…well written, very accessable (you don’t have to know tons about photography to understand it) and a variety of topics. I have learned a lot just from hanging out there. I especially love the tips I have gotten on composition.

OK…I had a little bit more, but I think that I will put it into a separate post…


About throwingmarshmallows

I am a homeschooling mom to two sweet, energetic boys although I am probably not exactly what you would expect (definitely NOT your stereotypical homeschooler, if there is really such a thing). I support progressive political causes (yes, liberals can and do homeschool!) and I have found a spiritual home in the Unitarian Universalist Church. I have no real idea of how I want to use this blog, but will probably focus on homeschooling, things that I am learning from my boys, personal thoughts and opinions and maybe some liberal politics thrown in, who knows!

    Hey thanks for the mention and the resource. I’ll have to check that out. I’m pretty impressed with some of my photos so I might try to do more of this.

    And get your left brained organizational desires out of here :-) I’m trying to embrace some of that right-brainedness that others can so clearly see. Hence the photography. It’s kind of fun, actually.
