Redshirting

Redshirting is holding your school-aged child back an extra year, and starting them in kindergarten at the age of 6 (or first grade at the age of 7). I was bouncing around the idea of writing a post about it and tried to look up the etymology of the term and came across two interesting things: (1) the term “redshirting” as far as I can tell, has its history in sports and something to do with Freshmen wearing red shirts, and (2) there is a MAJOR criticism in the world out there for people who choose to redshirt. Typically, the criticism came from people who have a different world view than I, so I decided no more bouncing around with an idea — I’ll go ahead and write it. :-)

Critical Thinking: How to Discriminate

We believe that Critical Thinking is a mental toolbox containing a number of thinking tools. We intend to teach our children how to use all those tools. One of those tools is the ability to discriminate; specifically meaning the ability to discriminate between a fact, an opinion, an assumption, or an inference.

We Can Bake It! Yes We Can!

This would be a WONDERFUL family project – a way to give back to those who have — and are — sacrificing so much and a way to open up the door to talk about things happening in our world and our wonderful military with your children.
