This is a fabulous post! I learned quite a bit.
Many people don’t know how to approach a family of a child with special needs. As a result, some choose to back off and not say or interact with us at all. Some people, however, make the attempt but the words just come out wrong.

We know that you mean well, but what you say is sometimes hurtful, even if you didn’t intend it to be.

This post is meant to help you navigate the special needs conversation so that you don’t put your foot in your mouth. It was also written to encourage those of you who are too afraid to approach us by using the conversation openers I share.

Read the 5 questions to avoid asking here: http://www.gabriellavolpe.com/5-questions-never-to-ask-a-parent-of-a-child-with-special-needs-what-to-ask-instead/

Great activity!
A fun way to gain wisdom is drawing Proverbs. These illustrations can be really fun, since many Proverbs contain pithy statements that have two opposites. #proverbs #homeschooling #ihsnet

A Pool Garden! How cool is this?!
Kiddie Pool Garden
If you live in an apartment or have limited yard space or just want to create a small garden just for kids, here's a quick and easy way to start one! We filled a small kiddie pool with soil and planted some herb seeds to grow an "edible forest" for small world play! We look forward to learning about each herb, caring for them, and playing in a small world of their own making!
