things I read

If you're interested, here are two other blogs I check regularly.

This is one mother's story of her son's autism. They are doing the Relationship Development Intervention (RDI) program that we are doing with our son, so it's been great to hear the progress her son has made. She's also doing homeschooling. The thought of that gives me the terrors!

This is the blog of a Christian egalitarian group. Lots of food for thought.

Reading this week has included a few recipe books focusing on cooking from scratch and saving money, a book about how babies communicate pre-language, and a very interesting historical novel, "The Other Boleyn Girl". It's a fictional account of Anne Boleyn, but it takes a whole different angle from the biography I read at the beginning of the year.

In that one, she was a devout woman in a very difficult position, with a sister who was a rampant whore. In this one she is the ambitious, calculating uncaring woman who will stop at nothing to get power. Her sister is the misunderstood, sweet girl with no choice but to do what her family tells her and become the king's mistress.
