We Actually Do Home Educate

The three readers of this blog have been very concerned about the education of my children. (Sorry Uncle Jerry, Mammaw, and Doug.) However, despite the inactivity here, we have been very active. I really, really want to document this journey. However, I may better be able to do it through quick blurbs and pictures rather than lengthy posts on a CM education.

That being said, allow me to SHOW you what our CM education has looked like since October. October?! It's really been that long?!

Now, hopefully with this new, easier method, I will update more often. Look for one coming soon! And I promise, they are learning! Remember what Charlotte Mason said, "In this time of extraordinary pressure, educational and social, perhaps a mothers first duty to her children is to secure for them a quiet growing time, a full six years of passive receptive life, the waking part of it spent for the most part out in the fresh air."


  1. Great to see the update! Wish more children had a quiet growing time.

  2. Thanks for sharing. Nana
