Despite the fact that the feds have earmarked $100 million in stimulus to save public school jobs, many schools schools are taking major hits due to city budget. Public schools were in need of major overhauling before the recession, who knows what will happen now. It may make some of you parents consider if homeschooling is a better option, especially if one parent has recently lost their job.

Heath Ashli Taranowski and her husband have been homeschooling their two boys for three years now. The four of them, along with their one cat and seven chickens, live in a rad A-Frame house in the Cascade Mountains of Seattle. There, Heath teaches her two sons within 49 square feet of the open living room under and next to the spiral staircase. We just love what a warm, creative, and inspiring space she's made...

"I use the web occasionally to look-up definitions and to teach them about things that I want them to know or are of interest to them. I mainly bookmark pages that have crafts/art I'd like to do w/ the boys or places I want to take them. These are a few of my favorite for local happenings -- DailyCandy Kids, Red Tricycle, and Ideal Bite.

Thanks Heath & fam!
