Across the ocean and back...

Just popping in quickly to share something... through the internet I've had the pleasure of connecting with people from all over the world! It's an amazing thing to find people doing the same things you do, across the ocean. There is a sense that the world is not quite so big and scary when we connect and share and find kindred spirits.

One such friend is Vibeke. Her blog, A butterfly in my hair, is a beautiful, calm place that I've grown to love. A while back she asked if I would participate in an conversation/interview of sorts on her blog... and of course I said yes! She has posted our words today, and I'd be thrilled if you would head over to take a look. We talk about everything from books to finding calm to knitting to writing... and more! Poke around her online home, Vibeke is a sweet soul, and I know you all will just love her!

  2. Lovely conversation at Vibeke's blog. It is no wonder you two found a kinship with each other, as your words and comforting posts are alike.

  3. I was so happy to find my way here through Vibeke's blog. It was a true pleasure to read tour conversation. I noticed we like many similar things like Austen's books, knitting, tea moments, nature, writing ( me in finnish), values, too. I particulary admire your decision about homeschooling. I am a teacher (in high school) myself and I think endless evaluations and consentrating to test scores is not good for children, like you said. Children need a safe environment, lots of time for creativity and warmness and kindness around them. Our son is 6 years old and he has just started in a very small christian scool. There are around 30 children in the whole school (from pre scool to 6 th grade), teachers are empathic and families are taking part to school life very much. (Usually in Finland there are around 20 pupils in one class.)
    I am wishing you and your family a very lovely and inspiring autumn!

    1. Anu, thank you thank you! I was just over at your blog and am so thankful for this connection! Your situation for your son sounds absolutely perfect... if we had that available we might do the same. Thank you for visiting!

  4. Like always, another great RR :) Congrats on the 3rd place! Sounds like a very challenging course on which you excelled. Looks like a bunch of us will be at Woodside in a few weeks. See you there! Ocean Photo Prints
