As a homeschooler, I have heard the name of Charlotte Mason all over the homeschool world. I have been curious about what the Charlotte Mason method is and have done a little research. What I found out looked interesting, so when I had a chance to review one of Kimberly Garcia's books from the Write From History curriculum, a Charlotte Mason writing program, I decided that this was a good chance to learn a little more about Charlotte Mason and how the Charlotte Mason method would work in our homeschool.
I was blessed to be able to read the devotional book, Putting on the Spirit: Ten Minute Devotions for Busy Moms by Katie Hornor. It came right at a time when I had been thinking about how I really need to find more time to be with God. As a busy, homeschool mom, I found this month long devotional book refreshing!
My apologies for my silence on here the last couple of weeks! I'm afraid that life has been a little crazy around here! We have been dealing with lice and the flu! And with all the extra Christmas activities we are involved in, something had to go, and I'm afraid the blog got the short end of the stick. The good news is that with all this craziness, I have some good ideas for future posts, like how to deal with lice! Until we are done with Christmas for the year I probably won't be posting much. In the new year I will be back with some more great posts!
Does anyone else struggle with keeping their children dressed? When it comes to clothing we are far from worried about having the best fashions or the best brand name. Most days I just want them to be wearing clean clothes that actually fit and cover their bodies the way they are supposed to! Clothes that actually match are optional ;)
Earlier this month I told you that we are reading through the Little House series in our homeschool. We have now finished reading Little House in the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder. While I read, the kids worked on our Little House lapbook binder. As I show you what we did, I will link to where you can find the same printables that we used. Just click on the purple words and it will take you to my Pinterest pins.
