"'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
with a quote from The Prelude by William Wordsworth

New! Hands On Homeschool Blog Carnival

My friend, Cheryl, over at Talking to Myself has created a new blog carnival that should be a great resource for homeschoolers.

Hands On Homeschool Blog Carnival is the place to post or view great homeschool learning projects. I am always looking for more hands-on activities so I can't wait to see the submissions. The first edition is scheduled to post on February 2nd so please drop by to submit an entry or browse the carnival!

I just submitted one of my hands-on math/science lessons from before Christmas. This carnival idea sounds like it's going to be a fun one! :o) She said you helped her come up with the idea - so I'm here thanking you, too! LOL
