The first week of November has brought warmer than usual temperatures and we've had some lovely days outside taking in as much sun as we can.
It seems we were just looking out into the snow and anticipating spring (or is it just me?) and here we are on the brink of winter again.
As much as I don't look forward to having to bundle three little people up every time we want to head outdoors, I'm also okay with the changing of another season...there is a different kind of beauty in each. But for now, I'm enjoying these extended days of warmth and wind and scattered leaves that go crunching under our feet.
When not chasing around these adorable people, I've been doing some reading on educational philosophies and approaches, specifically Charlotte Mason style homeschooling. Anyone familiar with this? From my research so far, I have to say I'm happily excited! My poor husband is constantly interrupted in the evenings as I want to tell him about this book and that blog post and these ideas and what Charlotte thought about _____.
As a child I loved to play teacher and the prospect of getting to do this in real life soon (or already, depending on how you look at it) makes me a little giddy. Especially getting to learn along with my littles, eek!
(Note: I realize homeschooling has it's very real and difficult aspects but for now I'm enjoying my rose-coloured it's-all-delightful-theory view!)
