It is true that I have been reading. Such inspirational books by the likes of Susan Branch, or Montessori books, or the wonderful crafty blogs out there. If only I could somehow link my blog feeds to my blog I could show you them!
In the meantime I have been waiting and watching for the links to come in to me for the Toymaking Fair... if you have an entry, be sure to get it to me soon! I have some great posts and links to share already!
I have also been schooling the kids. This week we were ecstatic to receive our Beeswax Crayons and Modelling Beeswax from Hazelnut Kids. M'Lady LOVES her block crayons because they cover the paper and they are HERS. BOTH of the kids love the modelling wax :) It just takes forever to warm when you have cold hands.
Today, Rebel finished school in about 1/2 an hour. I timed him as an incentive. His 1 hour math lesson took 10 minutes. His 45 minutes of Latin took 7 minutes. He then went on to have a thoroughly enjoyable time decorating his final draft of Aesop's Androcles and the Lion for Progymnasmata. OK something really needs a little work here obviously someone is not quite challenged enough. We'll work on breaking records next week!
In the meantime I have some reading to do!
