Term 3 resumes on Monday. Our lesson plans only really need a tweak here and there, however my mind is full of home education philosophy. How do I ‘marry’ Natural Learning with Charlotte Mason? How do I ensure our children have a solid grasp of the basics and yet thirst for knowledge? Any advice?
As I plan the next couple of months I once again re-visit the question of how to best to meet the needs of our younger ones. Jack Jack in particular is ready to move to a new level in his learning. Then again our highschoolers need to be carefully considered too.
Our children often surprise us with their choice of vocabulary. Jem 2, was explaining how he ran crying through the house in the wee hours of the morning (he didn’t know how to turn the doorknob on our new door).
“I ran back and forth, back and forth!”
Are our children the only ones who cheerily greet their mailbox!? Voices call out, “Hello Chomper!” as we turn off the main road onto our dirt track, passing by our mailbox.
We have a major change in our life beginning next week, one that will have an impact across many areas of our family dynamics. Stay tuned as I’m planning to find time to update over the weekend.
I have just re-read Rilla of Ingleside for the first time in twenty five years. I couldn’t bear to re-read it before now, back when I was a teen I was simply devastated, and cried for days when Walter died. True, I did cry again this time, but not for quite as long.
You may have noticed the ‘Aussie Bloggers’ list on my sidebar, shared there as I discover a number of new blogs. I’m really enjoying reading Aussie Mummy blogs, enjoying their thought provoking posts, they have a unique and distinctly Australian voice. I’ve even found a few rural mummy blogs too. Anyone want to recommend other Aussie blogs?
