Look what was waiting in the mail for me yesterday! A Starbuck's gift-card with a sweet note from Laura over at Wasted Textbooks and a birthday present from my twin, Michele, Laying Down the Rails. Thank you both!
If you know me from the blog world, you probably already know Laura. She's got a spring in her homeschooling step - reminding us to not take ourselves too seriously while saving us time by finding all the really cool free resources out there.
For those of you who have never read a book by Sonya Shafer of Simply Charlotte Mason she's got a few down-loadable for free at her site. Thanks to Sonya's CM Planner, I never once hyper-ventilated while writing out our scope & sequence. If you do pick up one of her books, the best advice I can give is to not even bother taking the lid off your hilighter or you'll just end up with completely yellow pages.
Now, just as soon as I can schedule it in, I'll be sipping a cafe' latte at Starbucks while reading my new Charlotte Mason Habits Handbook!
