One of the most appealing aspects of a Charlotte Mason education for me is the seamless interplay between art and science that is possible with nature study. Nothing compares to tromping through the woods in all weathers to track the first crocus. Alright, we usually just walk around our neighborhood…and only when it’s not too wet! But we still keep our Calendar of Firsts, and
We have been using Accelerated Christian Education (ACE) in our homeschool for about three years with all the children (except the twins who are too young).

You may be looking for new resources, making a big curriculum switch or even starting to homeschool. That’s why we will be back next week to
This year my younger son started his homeschooling journey with us. He went to the private school from play group to the second grade of the elementary school. We are not English native speakers. Even our language, Indonesian, has little relationship with the Latin.

When we first began the school year this past fall, one of the things we were most looking forward to was the Cover Story writing curriculum. We had utilized a variety of writing programs over the years and none were really very exciting. I had a strong feeling that Cover Story was just what we needed to spice things up.
