Keeping

Nearly all I now about keeping is from Laurie Bestvater’s book, The Living Page. If you haven’t read it, I encourage you to do so as soon as you can. She has done a yeoman’s work and served the CM community well with that work. There are, in that book, many practices. Many are flexible….

Our Weekly Amble for February 5-9, 2018

We had another really solid week of lessons to finish out our fifth week of the term. Four days of Whatchamacallit, which is my goal. They weren’t necessarily the best Morning Times ever, but they were good and we got a good deal of work. We’re almost done with our memory passage in John 14….

Our Weekly Amble for January 22-16, 2018

Overall, we accomplished a lot this week. We had four solid days of lessons, two days with Keeping Hour, and one Nature Walk. Woo-hoo! Monday and Tuesday were the best days we’ve had in a long time. Jason was working from home because he was sick and things just go more smoothly when he’s here. …

Our Weekly Amble for January 8-12, 2018

It was our first week of a new year!  Our first day we traditionally get something sweet for breakfast, but the weather was such that I didn’t want to go out, so Cinnamon Rolls and scrambled eggs it was: I realized this morning that we didn’t do our traditional self-portraits or interview pages. I’ll need…

Our Weekly Amble for September 18-22, 2017

Phew. Another solid week. Another overall good week where we accomplished almost all of what I wanted to. I returned to #uppingmybreakfastgame and made breakfast almost every – and the day I didn’t we had leftovers. Yay me. It does make a difference, though. We walked the dog every morning before school. That’s a total…

The Simple Woman’s Daybook for March 6, 2017

For Today… Looking out my window … it’s dark already. How’d this day go so quickly? I am thinking … about Nature Study and Keeping. I am thankful … for Kroger ClickList where I can do my grocery shopping from my laptop and pick it up when it’s convenient. I think I said that before,…

Our Weekly Amble for February 6-10, 2017

It was a weird week. Monday was a pretty solid day. We had sufficient work and the timing went pretty well. R-girl had an orthodontist appointment, so we didn’t do Whatchamacallit and the others were sending Google hangouts about their schoolwork: The olders had piano lessons while R-girl and I picked up our grocery order….

Our Weekly Amble for August 17-21, 2015

So, I did one of these posts about a month ago in July, then we went on vacation. We had a week of preparation, where we did some lessons, cleaned, and packed. We had the week of vacation itself, which was a wonderful time. We came home and had a pre-planned reset week where we…

Keeping Company: Convention Notebooks

I wrote some about my convention notebook before in my HS Essentials Post.  I thought I’d share more details about it for the Keeping Company in April I do love keeping this notebook year by year. I refer to it when determining talks I wish to attend. Many of the speakers present the same lectures…
