Recently, I've been listening to this podcast about the Charlotte Mason approach to homeschooling: A Delectable Education.
There are a lot of great ideas here, and now I plan to take a Charlotte Mason inspired approach to homeschooling next year. Sly will be in "first grade," so it's starting to get real!
Linus found his item right away:
haha! We ended up telling him he wasn't allowed to buy it, though.
But then when we were up at the register paying for things, Linus reached into the pocket of his little 2T shorts, and whipped out a crisp $100 bill!! Everyone of us - including the cashier and the people in line - gasped. It was so incongruous to see a toddler holding that much money, as if it were nothing. Sly explained that he had helped Linus pick out his money, and thought he'd given him a $1 bill!
And lastly, If you have any stained wood in your house, and don't already use stain markers, you have to get some! I use these everywhere - on our trim, floors, and furniture. As long as you use a stain color that's pretty close, they work wonders at hiding scratches.
