This whole article brought tears to my eyes. Real tears. "Some days I look at other boy moms raising quiet boys & wish...For days that aren’t so loud. For hearts that acquiesce. For smaller, less dramatic reactions to their problems. For a little more “go-with-the-flow,” & a little less “dig their heels in the ground.” For tossers instead of throwers. For pouting instead of hitting. But because they live their lives out loud, I know what’s in their hearts....."
GREAT post for parents raising rough and tumble boys. LOVE IT!!! In fact, everyone should read it!!!

"Prisoner of Dieppe" by Hugh Brewster. My students loved having me read this book aloud to them during our unit on Remembrance Day. Boys and girls alike enjoyed the story. It was especially meaningful to learn that some of the characters were real people who currently live in Hamilton.

Nick Vujicic, This Man, Worth Reading, Limited, Good Life, Book Worth, Motivation Book, Legs, Inspiration People
Nick Vujicic is one of the most inspiring people I have ever encountered. I saw him speak when I was 15 and his story has stuck with me ever since. Born without arms or legs Nick had to overcame many obstacles. This is his story about how he overcame his disability to live a ridiculously good life and how you can do the same. Nick inspires you to never give up your dreams and goals no matter what the obstacles are. He truly embodies the verse "I can do all things through Him who strengthens me"
This man is truly amazing. He is such a great speaker -so uplifting and interesting!! Life Without Limits: Inspiration for a Ridiculously Good Life by Nick Vujicic, http://www.amazon.com/dp/0307589749/ref=cm_sw_r_pi_dp_Q8atqb1J6GS7D
What an inspiring book...even funny. Certainly worth reading!
Life Without Limits: Inspiration for a Ridiculously Good Life by Nick Vujicic. A very inspirational guy. All you got to do is look at him and see that though he was born without arms and legs he's happy. Book is not a biography, but more of a motivational book with his story interwoven throughout the book. How do you live a happy fulfilled life when you are faced with challenges? This is the question he answers.

Homeschooling Inspiration <3 John Holt!!!
This enduring classic of educational thought offers teachers and parents deep, original insight into the nature of early learning. John Holt was the first to make clear that, for small children, “learning is as natural as breathing.” In this delightful yet profound book, he looks at how we learn to talk, to read, to count, and to reason, and how we can nurture and encourage these natural abilities in our children.”
How Children Learn (Classics in Child Development): John Holt // Amazon.com
Having lost his mother and his hearing in a short time, 12-year-old Ben leaves his Minnesota home in 1977 to seek the father he never knew in New York City, where he meets Rose, who is also longing for something missing from her life. Ben's story is told in words; Rose's in pictures.

TJED: Worth reading twice :)
A Thomas Jefferson Education, Oliver DeMille. I just got to hear this author speak about Classical Education, and WOW!! What a great speaker, and smart guy!!
A Thomas Jefferson Education: Teaching a Generation of Leaders for the Twenty-First Century: Oliver DeMille: a book about traditional, classics-based education. It is not just a homeschool book, but a book about what has worked historically in terms of education. It is a look into how our Founding Fathers were taught and inspired and an appeal for current educational systems to return to the classics.
Brand New : How Entrepreneurs Earned Consumers' Trust from Wedgwood to Dell. This is a really interesting read about historical entrepreneurs. It focuses on demand and market creation rather than disruption of existing markets like all those other business books :)
