Welcome to our Adventures in Home Schooling! We follow the Charlotte Mason philosophy of education fairly closely, with my own ideas and creations fitting in here and there. We love home education for our family and hope that as you join us now and again you will see a real family striving to serve the Lord and love each other along the way!
"Thought breeds thought; children familiar with great thoughts take as naturally to thinking for themselves as the well-nourished body takes to growing; and we must bear in mind that growth, physical, intellectual, moral, spiritual, is the sole end of education." ~ Charlotte Mason

Book Sharing Monday: The Kids Book of Canadian History
We are starting on Canadian History this year! I am using Donna Ward's Canadian History Bundle. This book came with the program. It's a beautiful book, starts out with Canada's first people right up to the Trudeau Years. The information is informative and the illustrations colourful and engaging. They will be reading this book 2-3 times a week as part of their history program. It's easy to read and follow. There is enough information to provide a clear picture of the historical event while at the same time, not wieghing the reader down with needless details. The kids appear to be enjoying it already, leafing through the pictures. They are ready to start learning about their own country's historical events and how that has and does impact their lives as Canadian citizens! I'm pleased to have this book to help that process along.
