I got to go to another Sonya Schafer seminar. To me she is a rock star in the home schooling community. Last January she came and did a seminar for our group about Fine Arts. This go around it was a morning of encouragement with Establishing Habits and Chasing After our Children's Hearts. Great morning. Lots of new ideas. I had purchased the Laying Down the Rails book last time and read through it with all intent of starting, but alas, did not. I am really going to start this time. Each good habit should be worked on for 8 weeks to stick. We will be starting with neatness or purity. I also purchased some new items to spend time with over the Thanksgiving Holiday. The Books and Things Seminar and Sonya's new Hearing and Reading, Telling and Writing. Looking so forward to getting in the thick of things. Sonya is always such a blessing. I would pay to hear her read the newspaper to us. That is how good she is. If you have never visited her website I strongly recommend it. Especially if you are a CMer. www.simplycharlottemason.com.
