Where to Do Nature Study

Posted by LilBearsMama on July 17, 2015 in Charlotte Mason, Curriculum, Nature Study |
Several times lately I've seen folks in Facebook groups asking just where they are supposed to go to do nature study.

Blackberries and Friends

Posted by LilBearsMama on July 6, 2015 in General, Nature Study |
WarriorsIt's nice to find people who you can enjoy being around. We were invited to visit some friends and pick some blackberries. We originally intended to stay only long enough for Boobear and their son to play a bit and get berries. We ended up staying for dinner (our friends' treat, and it was a real treat!) and having an incredibly nice visit. It was just what we needed - an evening with good food, good friends, happy kids. Don't forget - grown-ups need time to visit with other grown-ups too! It's Read more [...]
