with an old friend this summer.
Charlotte Mason and I need to reacquaint ourselves. This past school year went ok, considering all that we've been through but I definitely did not have my heart in it and neither did the children. We just missed Ryan too much. It has been nearly a year now and I still cry at the drop of a hat but I do feel some enthusiasm for my work as a homeschool teacher returning. Some.
I was delighted to see that my friend Theresa is also going back to the CM way. Theresa and I have been online friends for a number of years now and we actually were able to meet at the 4Real conference a few years ago. She was a great source of inspiration to me early on and I am looking to her for more as she turns back to CM (blog more Theresa!).
Michele, Alice, Lissa and Macbeth have always provided inspiration and I have been stalking some people's blog for more mostly Jen lately.
I like the idea of settling back into a routine that includes lots of read-a-louds, narrations, copy work and time outside. Discussions and writing shall be a big focus as well.
For inspiration I keep re-reading this post of Lissa's that she recently sent to me.
What's inspiring you?
Dear Mary Ellen,
It must be the air or something I have been thinking the same thing.
Your books look well loved like mine do.
Funny how we always come back to this Isn’t it?
I can understand your lack of enthusiasm though. It must still be so hard for you
I will continue to pray for you.
CM is like our educational refuge–the safe harbor we turn to when life gets overly complicated.We know we can go there and at least one aspect of our lives (school) will be simple and sweet.
I’m so glad to travel this road with you, Mary Ellen. You are always an inspiration.
