A new post title. :) Done with the "Day" titles.........
No news on the house. :(
A lovely morning at our singing group rehearsal - we are working on Christmas music which makes me very very happy!! :) Saraya had a sleep-over at her friend's house last night ( I popped over at 8pm to kiss her goodnight and she was having a great time ;)) and is still there now. Due home soon. As are my parents, who are coming up to visit us!
I was doing some reading earlier and came across this wonderful quote from Charlotte Mason, one of my favourite authors on homeschooling. Loved it so much I thought I would share it. I couldn't agree more with this quote, and find it so relevant to the smooth running of our house.
Have a great day friends!
"Do not let the children pass a day without distinct efforts, intellectual, moral, volitional; let them brace themselves to understand; let them compel themselves to do and to bear; and let them do right at the sacrifice of ease and pleasure: and this for many higher reasons, but, in the first and lowest place, that the mere physical organ of mind and will may grow vigorous with work. . . Just as important is it that the brain should have due rest; that is, should rest and work alternately." -Charlotte Mason (Home Education, p.22)
