Barb at the Handbook of Nature Study blog invited me to contribute to this month's e-newsletter. The focus is Nature Journals, which you know is one of my very favorite topics. :) If you haven't downloaded it yet, go take a look!
A few friends have asked me to share more about how we handle memory work, so I'll be getting to that soon, including an update on how our Evernote organizational plan is working. (Hint: we still love it!) Toward that end, though, I finally put up a Memory Work Index, inspired by Brandy (whose own index I have referred to for ideas several times!). It's a running log of the memory work we have been doing as a family for the past three years. You can find it along my top menu. Feel free to reference our list and see if there are a few you might add to your own family rotation.
I'm still reading through The Living Page, but after that, I'm hoping to dive in to Charlotte Mason's Volume 6 and blog through it very slowly over the course of the year. By the way, you can find my Read-Alongs on the right sidebar now (scroll down to the bottom). Last year, I read through Charlotte Mason's Volume 1 and When Children Love to Learn.
Another frequent search recently: here's what my children and I used to prepare for their First Holy Communion last year. (I have also been sharing snippets of one of my favorite religious books for children, Mother Mary Loyola's First Communion, in my Wednesdays with Words posts as we read through it this year. Preparing for Holy Communion needn't end with the first time--it's a lifelong process.)
Any other suggestions? I'm directing some of my nesting energy toward tidying up around here! (Can you believe I have only eight weeks left?!) So let me know in the comments or via email if there's anything else you'd like to see.
