• We're a home educating family of six living in Maryland. Our style is Charlotte Mason and we love both the Ambleside and Sonlight curriculums, but we frequently wander from the main path to explore "rabbit trails." Here we share our days: home learning, living books, nature discoveries, and life with children.

Charlotte Mason:

  • "We allow no separation to grow up between the intellectual and 'spiritual' life of children, but teach them that the Divine Spirit has constant access to their spirits, and is their Continual Helper in all the interests, duties and joys of life." ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Loved this post!! Not just the sharing, but the SHARING!! Sometimes I think my friends and readers get the very wrong impression of our home school, and now I know why!! I'm not SHARING enough!! :D


WOW! Your back table looks EXACTLY like mine! I mean the set and the fact that it's covered with nature journals, field guides and color pencils!

I'm adding you to my blog roll now!

Fabulous blog!


I'll have to listen for that in our own little woods, thanks for the link to the bird song.

I'm so glad you shared what the time was *really* like...I so often think I'm the only one to have every moment be a little nutty. :)

There is an awesome children's book called, Flute's Journey, about the life of a Wood Thrush. We read it last year. Maybe you and the kids would enjoy it.

I have the Anne Comstock Nature Study book as well, and love it. We really need to do more nature study and journaling. We have a wood thrushon our porch who built her nest in my bag of potting soil she now has three eggs in it, its right outside our door and we can see in it from the side windows. its quite interesting indeed.

Love your blog btw , great ideas.


What a beautyful place for the project. This is soo lovely!
