Rest on LABOR DAY


Glad to have a rest on this
rainy Labor Day. My high
school Antiquities Class starts
tomorrow. Charlotte Mason said
Education is a Life. It is an
Atmosphere..... and the start of
Education is a Discipline. The
work of reading and thinking
begins.

They have been reading
their choice of anyTolkien books
this summer. I'm sure JRRT would
be thrilled to see his fantasy myths
start off a year in Ancient Literature.

I hope to post a writing exercise
after we do it that I did with
Lauren Winner at her writing
workshop a few years ago. Time
does fly ~~we will be looking
at that from John Milton:
On Time as God created Time on Earth
in Creation
.

Bonnie, in response to your "writing exercise" part of this post, there is a blog that I like that belongs to a writer. She has regular writing prompts on Fridays. I think this would be of interest.

Her regular blog is good too.

I am also excited about Beth's class. Jonathan really enjoyed it last year, and he is fortunate to have the opportunity to study with her again. She is wonderful!
