How can we help you Homeschool better?

The Way Home - The Link's eNewsletter

Dear Readers:

This week we offer you an article about a new type of farm ownership and one about gratefully receiving your child’s gifts. First, is a piece about Skokomish Farms of Washington state, where families can purchase homes grouped around a working farm, which they also own a commercial interest in. It is a very attractive idea for many homeschooling families, who want to be self-sufficient and/or live in a very peaceful and natural setting. Our second article, by family therapist, Victoria Kindle-Hodson: Inspire Giving: Gratefully Receive Your Child’s Gifts. Thank you for reading our publications.

Skokomish Valley Farms (SVF) the Ultimate in a Relaxed Homeschooling Lifestyle
By Michael Leppert

Across the U.S. there are a small but vital number of intelligent land planners who are focusing on a new concept of land and housing management. Instead of homes surrounding a golf course, these planners are developing homes surrounded by a working farm that is shared by the homeowners.

One of these visionary land planning companies is Skokomish Valley Farms in the Puget Sound region of Washington state. They employ a professional Farm Manager who works with the homeowners’ Farm Owners Association (FOA) and handles the crop, orchard and livestock production and marketing of SVF products. The homeowners can work on the farming end if they choose, but they do not have to. They do share in the fruits of the farm work and they enjoy the benefits of rural-suburban farm living, perfect for raising children and homeschooling!

Inspire Giving: Gratefully Receive Your Child's Gifts
By Victoria Kindle Hodson

No matter how old you are, giving is a fundamental human need, and perhaps the source of the greatest possible joy.

Parents are well-practiced givers and generously provide for the survival and emotional needs of their families. As best we can, we give our children a warm, dry place to live; nourishing food and clean clothes, as well as a web of caregivers and teachers to meet their needs for safety, belonging, growth and learning, and on and on. It is just what Moms and Dads and Grandmas and Grandpas and so many others do for kids.

At the same time children are receiving this bounty from others, they have an enormous need to be contributors to the wellbeing of others. In fact, it is hardwired into each of us to be part of heartfelt, mutually-beneficial exchange network. This capacity for giving and receiving is at the foundation of what it means to be human. Who knew that giving is actually in our DNA?
