a little bragging

Paige, a high school sophomore, just passed the test making her eligible to take college courses next year. The best part is, Denver Public Schools will pay for it since she is attending the online high school. The course is actually held at a community college, so it will be a great opportunity for her to meet some new people.

She's only going to take one class, as she already has a heavy schedule, plus her film class, but any chance she gets to chip away at her core classes is fantastic.

3 gardens urban co-op

As some of you may know, we are pretty obsessed with urban homesteading. From converting our yard into planting space, raising honey bees and canning everything we can, we're doing it. This year we took it a step further. We have invited two other families to be part of a garden co-op. This way we have more space for raising a variety of produce - plus we get to share our experience with our friends who want to become more aware of where their food comes from.

We have started a blog documenting this experiment. Like this project, it is in the early stages. Take a look and see what you think.
