{Nature Book Club} Chloe’s Eggs

It’s time for the Nature Book Club again! This month’s theme is eggs. I found Chloe’s Eggs at the library a few weeks ago and knew I wanted it for this month’s book club. It’s a sweet story about a hen, Chloe, who decides one day that she wants to sit on her eggs instead of letting …

What’s In My April Mother’s Morning Basket

Autumn is here. The sun is rising later and the mornings are getting cooler. I haven’t been sleeping well lately, so it is tempting to ignore my alarm when it goes off at 5am. Early morning exercise hasn’t been happening either. But at least I don’t have to leave the warmth of my bed to …

My Charlotte Mason Elevator Speech

February Mother’s Morning Basket

I didn’t post my Mother’s Morning Basket at the beginning of the month because I hadn’t yet finished reading the books in January’s Basket. Slow reading is something I’m still getting used to. But, I’ve read them all now, so I can share what’s in my new Morning Basket – and it’s still February, though …

Making The Most Of Morning Time

If you’ve been homeschooling for any length of time, you’ve probably heard Morning Time mentioned. If you’re anything like me, you might even be doing some kind of Morning Time without realising it. We started calling it Morning Time about November last year, when we added a hymn to our regular morning Bible and prayer …
