Hands up, if you know that educating your children is time consuming in the most wonderful way!
I see those hands.
Okay, hands up if you have been trying to invent the perfect schedule!
Well I'm not too sure if I can see any hands, but mine are up high right now.
It was about five years ago that I started studying the Charlotte Mason approach to education. The moment I started reading about Miss Masons way of teaching I was hooked and very much desired to be able to apply her principles in our homeschool.
Little by little I reduced the text books I was using and began to introduce wonderful literature to our learning and we began narration.
I slowly added books that ambleside online recommended and my main source of help to add Australian Literature to the ambleside curriculum came from Jeanne at A Peaceful Day and from there I have grown immensely.
Last year we were following the Ambleside curriculum about 80%, but this year we are following Ambleside 100% to the best of my ability and I must tell you I am very thrilled about this.
I have finally reached that place in my mind where I am confident with this approach and I 100% believe that this is the direction that the Lord has led me to.
So yesterday I completed what I like to call the perfect schedule to officially start this week. We actually started last week but I always like to have a week where we ease back into homeschooling.
Now to me, this schedule I have put together is perfect but not realistic and is there as a guide for me as I continue to grow more and more.
