  1. I haven't kept up with these threads, so forgive me if this has already been shared. This company has been republishing classics and recently published this book by Ella Frances Lynch: Educating the Child at Home. I thought that I'd share it here in case anyone would like it. 🙂
  2. Since I'm always interested in curriculum, I decided to take a look at Master Books. I was especially intrigued since there was mention of it being "Charlotte Mason inspired". But, after looking at a couple of their language samples, I can decidedly say that this not at all in keeping with Charlotte Mason. How misleading! I see that they define it as "inspired", but some of their lessons are actually in complete contradiction to her ideas and methods. There are different approaches to "narration", but this emulates another style and not CM. Where are the living books? On

  8. Thornton Burgess also wrote a book for birds, the seashore and flowers. He also wrote some titles such as The Adventures of Danny Meadow Mouse, The Adventures of Grandfather Frog, etc. Feel free to message or email me if you have any questions. I'd be happy to help! Also, there are lots of articles on the blog portion of the website: A Mind in the Light as well as links to many books and resources under the tab Resources.

  10. My two daughters (17 and 23) were gifted a pair and absolutely love them! We know of others who have them and love them too. I recently gifted my mother a pair, since she loves to wear leggings and is always so generous with us. She loves them too. We are sure to wash them carefully and not put them in the dryer. Also, the big price tag includes a lifetime warranty, so if anything at all happens to them you can send them in for a new pair for free. 🙂 I found this article and thought it had some good tips! https://www.styledemocracy.com/lululemon-secrets-from-previous-employees

  13. I just wanted to support this perspective. My younger daughter has been heavily involved in dance since she was a little girl. She attends a true classical dance school, which teaches jazz, modern and contemporary, but with its biggest focus on ballet. In all her years there (she's a senior this year), she has never been taught the style of dance often taught at competition type schools. Research would show that true versions of these styles of dance do not involve any of this. Her classes in jazz, modern and contemporary were never taught this way. In fact, modern dance can sound as if she we
