“Self-education is the only possible education; the rest is mere veneer laid on the surface of a child's nature.” ~Charlotte Mason
one of the ways i can tell whether the kids are learning what we've been studying is how and what they play.
not long ago we read when Laura Ingalls Wilder gave birth to her daughter Rose. it was not a traumatic story...i think the kids even giggled. and we moved on. so i thought.
today...they were filled with excitement to show me what they were playing.
up top there is cowgirl laura with her new baby, i spared you the delivery pictures.
and this must be Manly off to get the doctor. i love the wagon made from bristle blocks. scout spends a lot of time making reigns, halters and bits for every animal in their play arsenal.
so there you have it...they hear it, act it out and it's there...in their minds for a lifetime to come!
