Day in the Life of a Homesteader-129

Don’t you just love a good farm tour? Honestly, if I’ve got to leave ours, I hope that’s where I’m going! Even better than a farm tour though is getting to see the in’s and out’s of farm life from not one, not two, but several homesteads… seeing what life is really like during a day […] Read more…


~Teaching Children~

| homestead management, In the Schoolroom, quotes


While our home education program isn’t centered on teaching our children to feed themselves & live in a community responsibly, it does make up a pretty important part of it. What a blessing it is to have them all here with us every day so that while learning to feed ourselves and all the little details it entails that we […] Read more…

One Year Ago Today: ~The 25th Psalm~ Week Ten.  Which is simply the number of weeks since I randomly chose to post photos of random homestead happenings.  Of which this happens to be the tenth week.  Which happens to be the week I finished up the 2013 canning season, by pulling some frozen elderberries out […] Read more…


~The Conscience~

| Charlotte Mason, In the Schoolroom


It has been way too long since I posted my quotes and notes from the first book of The Original Charlotte Mason Homeschooling series. And to think, I only have two posts left before I finish with the book.  I’m well into reading the second volume now, but it isn’t written in such a way […] Read more…

Frankly, recognizing my own terribly sinful nature, I have a difficult time reading through these […] Read more…

~Your Questions: Art~

| artist study, Charlotte Mason, In the Schoolroom


How do you start your littles with art? I’m afraid I don’t know much more about art than the “pea and stick” approach, so I have no idea how to guide my little ones through this. I think it will be so valuable for them, but I don’t know where to start. Tips? Approaching art […] Read more…

~Pictorial Art~

| artist study, Charlotte Mason, In the Schoolroom


The art training of children should proceed on two lines. The six year old child should begin both to express himself and to appreciate, and his appreciation should be well in advance of his power to express what he sees or imagines… [taking] one artist after another, term by term, and study quietly some half-dozen reproductions […] Read more…

~Charlotte Mason on History~

| Charlotte Mason, In the Schoolroom


Much that has been said about the teaching of geography applies equally to that of history. The fatal mistake is in the notion that he must learn ‘outlines,’ or a baby edition of the whole history of England, or of Rome, just as he must cover the geography of all the world. Let him, on […] Read more…

~Charlotte Mason on Geography~

| Charlotte Mason, In the Schoolroom


Just some quotes today…  Geography is, to my mind, a subject of high educational value; the peculiar value of geography lies in its fitness to nourish the mind with ideas, and to furnish the imagination with pictures. Geography should be interesting-The child’s geography lesson should furnish just the sort of information which grown-up people care […] Read more…
