"'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

A Few Lenten Resources

In case you have procrastinated and now that Ash Wednesday is upon us you are looking for a few good Lenten resources (which is my usual state of affairs...)

The Lenten Workshop at Catholic Culture has sections for information, prayers, activities, and a personal program.

The Interactive Calendar at EWTN
offers daily reflections and actions.

The Lenten Season from the USCCB also has an interactive calendar plus a lot of information and suggestions for the season.

Vivificat! has put together an extensive collection of Lenten reading free for the dowloading.

May your Lent be fruitful.

I just came across what looks like a great site and wanted to make sure that you knew about it!


Also, I registered our homeschool to recieve this free dvd on American History and wanted to pass the link on to you in case you would be interested.
