{Nature Study} Signs of Spring

Each week, we spend “hours in the out of doors,” as Charlotte Mason called it. I like to set aside a certain amount of time each week, devoted to our Nature Study. One of the kids’ favorite nature study times is during the change of seasons… I always send ‘em…

The 2:1 Conference and Me

It’s been about a week and a half since I left my “blogging family” at the 2:1 Conference behind. Seriously. That’s how I feel about them. I won my ticket to the very first 2:1 Conference and attended it with a mix of excitement and trepidation back in April of…

Traveling Grace…

I love the airport. Love watching planes take off and land… love watching all the hustle and bustle of the people excitedly moving from one place to another on whatever grand adventure they’re embarking on. But I’m not so crazy about sitting in front of the car rental counters trying…

The One Where I Learn More Than the Kids

I’ve been a Christian for 19 years now. {Wow I just felt old when I wrote that…} And in that 19 years, despite spells where I meandered away from my focus on God, I have maintained a fervent interest in learning all that I can about my God, my Savior,…

WW {3/20/13} Learning Something New

Part of a Charlotte Mason education includes the learning of handicrafts. Handicrafts are particular skills used to make decorative {and useful!} objects by hand. These include beading, drawing, knitting, pottery, scrapbooking, woodworking, and many, many more. Sammi has long had a desire to learn to sew and I have honestly…

No Signs of a Slow Down

Being “too busy to blog” is apparently my new season in this life. So I’ve made the decision to set aside a time to write every. day. I don’t know that I’ll post everything I write… but it should definitely make for more material for me to work with. This month…

No Excuses… Just the Truth

After my last post on February 11th, I really got rolling again with my writing. So exciting! After battling through sicknesses with the kids and then my own sickness, I was standing on solid ground again… finding my inspiration… and pounding out words on the screen. Unfortunately, they’re kinda stuck…
