• 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." ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I am always glad when I have taken moments like these. But then why am I so reluctant to take the time on another day? Sigh...

(And who are those tall children in your photo?!)

I stumbled on your blog when I googled "Charlotte Mason Baltimore" in a moment of desperation. My husband and I are grad students at Johns Hopkins, and we little in a city rowhouse apartment with our two little ones. I was homeschooled in the Charlotte Mason style (and am the oldest of seven) and can't say how grateful I am for the kind of education it looks like you are offering you children. I am eager to reach out to someone in the area who might be a friend and mentor to me as I embark on home educating my own children (though they are still quite small). I don't know how close you actually are to Baltimore, but if you might be interested in getting in touch with me, my email is

And it listed my husband's name, but I'm Kjerstin. :)


Hi Kjerstin, it's great to "meet" you! I'm no longer in the greater Baltimore area as my family has relocated to a different part of Maryland (though not so very far away), but I would very much enjoy connecting with you. I'm so excited to hear that you plan to home educate your children and would be glad to share any resources/ideas that might be of help you. Would you be able to leave another comment with your email address (it won't be viewable by anyone but me) so I can send you my email? Blessings to you and yours...Kathy


Oh! I just re-read your comment and see that you did leave your email (I'm very tired this evening). Will contact you soon.
