The colors in Minnesota are stunning right now! The tumbling of the leaves through the air is always a magical sight. Tomorrow we are planning a field trip to the Pipestone National Monument and since geology is my latest interest, I look forward to experiencing it with new eyes that the Charlotte Mason method continues to awaken in me.
COMMON PLACE QUARTERLY
Have you heard about the new Charlotte Mason magazine, Common Place Quarterly? It will be a wonderful addition to your Charlotte Mason toolbox whether you are a newbie or a veteran! God has brought together this eclectic group of women, many I have never met, to share from their hearts about this philosophy and lifestyle. One of the best things will be that it isn’t online. I mean, there is a website and that will have some helpful information, but the product is a hold-it-in-your-hands, real thing. I try to limit my online involvement to a degree and I think this is one of the reasons I am so drawn to this project. I want to be as present in my home as possible, but I digress. We can talk about that later. (And we will!) There will be a specific focus on the keeping of notebooks led by the inimitable Celeste Cruz of Joyous Lessons, recitation helps and education from Maria Bell’s outstanding research, and so many other passionate practitioners that each month will be its own treasure trove! Subscribe by December 31st to get the first issue.
I will be writing a regular column on a variety of topics based on my experience and daily inspiration. The title will be:
The title is inspired by both Mason and Wordsworth and I will talk more about that in the column.
