    I’m ba-ack! We were traveling over the weekend. My husband’s twin brother was ordained at his church in Florida, and so he and I flew out. It was so nice to see everyone, but especially my four beautiful nieces. I haven’t seen them in almost three years.

And that’s where I first got the idea for this Way of the Will, Way of the Reason design. These two ways are for all persons, of course, but I wanted my son to know that these two ways are what make men great. So here’s to greatness. Here’s to Charlotte Mason For Boys!

    Yes, there is still another AfterCast episode coming out for this season. I just didn’t manage to get it done before I left for Florida last week. I hope to get it done next week … we shall see!

    I had totally forgotten about this! This was the first of two years in a row that I published a 31 Days series devoted to all things Charlotte Mason. This link will take you to the 2013 table of contents. I didn’t write it all myself, of course. I had a wonderful team!
