Hmm, is it that the measles infection means less allergies? or is it that children who are likely to have a lifestyle that includes not being vaccinated for measles/eventually getting measles also have lifestyle factors that make them less likely to have allergies (in this case, biodynamic foods, allowed to have fevers, fewer antibiotics)?

Can you also give me an example of what is in the Latin Centered that is different from what WTM suggests? Thanks! Info on Latin Centered vs. Trivium-inspired neoclassical is #5 on this page. Also here. Andrew Campbell's general take on Classical Ed is here.

We're definitely multum non multa (which, for the first time ever, I typed correctly -- I never could remember if it's "multum non multa" or "multa non multum", but I've been slogging through Henle myself and bits of the language are actually starting to stick in my brain -- yay me). The big things at our house are Latin, math and music. Older dd is using Latin for Children Level B, Life of Fred Algebra 1, Analytical Grammar, and we need to get back to Classical...
Diary of a Sewing Fanatic is a woman who works in the corporate world, likes high fashion, and makes her clothing herself because it's the only way she can get the quality she wants in her size. That's the only one I'm coming up with off the top of my head, but I'm sure there's more....
