    Season 3 of AfterCast started back up yesterday. I started the season off with this:

    You can listen to it from the link in the post, but I always think the best and easiest way to subscribe is to find AfterCast in your favorite podcast player and subscribe.

    Do you think in grids or lists when it comes to homeschooling? I thought it was an interesting question to ask when Pam talked about the benefit of thinking in lists. It was Pam who introduced me to loop scheduling, which was a total game changer for me. I was trying to organize Circle Time the same way even after it stopped working. Boo. It’s important to remember that as our children mature, our planning usually has to, too.

    And that’s okay!

    Pam’s giving away three types of lists to get you started. (Just scroll to the bottom and fill out the form to get them.)

    Answering your questions:

    Question: How can I find a Scholé Sisters group in my area?

    Answer: Use our new map!! Now, a lot of states don’t yet have groups listed. If yours doesn’t, fill out the form and say “looking to start” and who knows what might come of it? We’ve already heard of groups starting this way. If you have a group (it doesn’t have to actually be called “Scholé Sisters,” by the way — it just needs to be a group of moms committed to encouraging each other in scholé), make sure you add it.

    I really liked your post about Kim and the river. I listened to it on audiobook when my oldest was reading it and I think I missed some of the symbolism, so I love your insights about it. Maybe I need to read it again. My daughter definitely didn’t get the symbolism. My second child will be starting AO5 in the fall. My question is, did you discuss all the symbolism and insights you were seeing with your children, or did you let them narrate what they knew and leave it at that?
