    I’ve had a number of projects going on behind the scenes here. The biggest one is still under wraps for another week or two, but that doesn’t mean I can’t share the other exciting stuff that I’ve been wanting to talk about for months and months!

    One of them was talked about in this special episode of The Scholé Sisters Podcast:

    Have you listened yet?

    If you haven’t listened, but you’re dying to know already, we announced our summer special project: Scholé Sisters Local Retreats!

    It’s explained in greater depth in the podcast, so make sure you listen, but you can get the major details here.

    Here’s the thing: it’s going to be totally FUN!

    Charlotte Mason Boot Camp is going on sale really, really soon. The Summer Session is going to run from June 19-July 29, 2017. If you didn’t catch it, I announced a scholarship opportunity on Facebook. Today is the last day to apply, so if you need it, don’t delay.

    And if you aren’t on the CMBC interest list, make sure you are!

    This month in 2013:

    Yes, I did. I talked about it — and the subject was quite controversial at the time. I think my Charlotte Mason was showing a bit in this series. Thankfully, I still mostly agree with myself.

    Today is the LAST DAY to sign up for Mystie’s Six-Week Sweep and Smile Study. I should have decluttered last summer, but I didn’t, so I am very happy that she’s going to help me get my house back in shape.

    Her 6-week summer Sweep and Smile study begins TODAY, which is pretty perfect because yesterday was our last day of school.

    Care to join me? Go sign up!

    An old neighbor of mine used to call me Madame Defarge whenever he saw me knitting. 🙂 I didn’t think it could really work, though. Funny.

    Aww, we’ll be on a family camping trip during the online retreat day! I know I can watch the replay but it wouldn’t be the same as getting to watch live and discuss with you all!

    People started using cell phones and now can not recall a phone number apart from their own. People who used to be quite competent at looking up directions to a new destination and following them are utterly lost now if their phone loses service on the way. Is this a problem? I think not, IF we are cultivating different skill sets and knowledge instead. But if this “external brain” is encouraging, enabling us to think and remember LESS, then we are certainly in trouble. I’m thinking through my homeschool vision lately and this question is definitely informing the process.
