"'Education is the Science of Relations'; that is, that a child has natural relations with a vast number of things and thoughts: so we train him upon physical exercises, nature lore, handicrafts, science and art, and upon many living books, for we know that our business is not to teach him all about anything, but to help him to make valid as many as may be of––
'Those first-born affinities,
That fit our new existence to existing things.'"

Charlotte Mason, A Philosophy of Education

Art project, finally

The kids finally completed an art project a week later than I expected. It seems our Fridays continue to be taken up with all sorts of different things...

This simple project involved making patterns with primary colors. While my boys do not have the drive to create perfect reproductions in each square, the results were still pretty good.
