Carolyn is a modern homeschooler living a Charlotte Mason inspired life. She lives, loves, and learns every day of the year with her husband and three children - ages 12, 8, and 4. On this slice of the web she shares what she's working on, reading, what she's researched online, and what her children are up to. She lives with her family and two dogs in a sunny place where it never snows.
We're participating in the Outdoor Hour. Charlotte Mason stressed nature walks throughout a child's education. In Kindergarten, we will only be taking nature walks to develop the habit of being outdoors and appreciating the wonders of nature. Next year we'll be doing full-fledged nature studies with the excellent guide Handbook of Nature Study by Anna Botsford Comstock.
Harmony Art Mom has a fantastic blog that details her observations and sketches using Handbook of Nature Study. The photos are terrific, too. We will be posting our findings as soon as they are available.
