some thoughts...

>my husband is currently reading this book & he loves it! (good pointers in raising our boys.)

>mike & i are watching this series & i've learned more about our nation's history then i ever did reading text books in school.

>speaking about school... we are going to homeschool our kids. i was homeschooled from 2nd thru 12th grade & i loved it. i've been doing a lot of thinking (& some research) about what style of teaching we want to use with our children.
    *classical
    *charlotte mason
    *unschooling
    *or all of the above :)
it's quite overwhelming thinking about what a big responsibility it is to teach our children everything they need to know. i guess the same is true about raising them & training their hearts & pointing them to Christ. that's why, as parents, we just have to do what the Lord leads us to do & trust that He is in control.

>some books i want to read about education... the well trained mindyou are your child's first teacherplayful learningthe creative family.

>this website is great.

>hope we're in memphis in april so we can go to this.

the end

I am pretty sure we are going to start using Charlotte Mason next year. At first I was a little confused about how to build the curriculum and lesson plans, but SimplyCharlotteMason.com pretty much solved that problem. I am currently reading the book "When Children Love to Learn - A Practical Application of Charlotte Mason's Philosophy for Today." I hope you get to go to the conference!
