During August 2017- March 2018 we walked through Volume 1 of “Home Education” by Charlotte M. Mason.  It was a such a wonderful time of fellowship and discussion each month.  We will pause for May- July to be with family, assimilate and refresh ourselves & family with our new knowledge.

On August 18, 2018 we begun with Volume 2 of “Parents and Children” by Charlotte M. Mason.  Let’s all try to read, but always come and delight in refreshing company and encouraging embraces, no matter what.

September: Chapters 2- 9, pages 10-91

November 13th : Chapters 10-16, pages 92-177*

** (we will meet in -person for a wrap celebration)

Additionally, please come with a commonplace entry from the current volume’s reading portion (simply a sentence or passage or even only a short phrase that Miss Mason gives in the reading selection for the month). This will be a nice way to help us stay connected in the volumes when we are in discussion each month. If you do not already have a commonplace book a simple journal will work well. Adding to it as you come to something that speaks to you personally, whether in the volumes or any other book you may be reading through.
