Too Much!!!

Remember how excited I was about this idea? Well, it turns out that while it is a lovely idea, for my family at least it is just too much work. I have to constantly be on the kids about reading their books. And, it is taking a lot of time each day to get through everything with the two of them. So I am simplifying very, very much. It was a good experiment, and I learned more about our learning styles in this house, so it wasn't a waste of time. it also got the kids looking at different sections of the library!

And while we're really enjoying A Little History of the World and A Little History of Science, speeding through them is getting irritating, so we're slowing down and adding in content from Builders of the Old World.

And now for something completely different!

A garden collage...

The Girl's clematis is blooming madly; my hydrangeas are in nearly full flower; the lamb's ear bloomed this year; and we've started picking cherries off our tree already!

  1. Your garden's looking great!

    Your new plan sounds good. Of course, as a bibliophile I thought your old one sounded good too :)
