    A month ago, I was in a clothing panic. A layering tank I owned bit the dust unexpectedly, and there was simply no time to go out and shop. However, comma, I really needed the tank as it was part of an outfit I was supposed to wear while speaking.

    I decided to try ordering one on Amazon and all I can say is WOW. I now own four of these in three different colors, and we bought a couple for A-Age-Fourteen as well.

    I was in need of a fresh supply of tanks for summer — I like them well constructed, thick enough that you can’t see through them but light enough to layer something over it when I go out, and long. These fit that criteria perfectly. If you’re in need of a basic tank, Daughter A. and I recommend them!

    Here’s the latest Scholé Sisters episode! It is always wonderful to chat with Eric … such an interesting conversation. ♥

    Registration for the Scholé Sisters Spring Training is now open! (Please note: if you are a Sistership Premier member, you do not need to purchase this as it is included in your membership.)

    This series of three evening lectures (replays available, of course) is something we’re really excited about. Taught by one of our favorite professors, Eric Hall, Scholé Sisters Spring Training will help us build (or reinforce) a basic understanding of educational philosophy and Christian classical education.

    If you need some homeschool encouragement, maybe this will help.

    I’ve been working hard, preparing for Flourish next month. This is a 2-session live online event I’ll be hosting that offers a Charlotte Mason Annual Homeschool Review — it’s the perfect way to close out the year. In order to look forward and plan in wisdom, we need to look back with wisdom as well. That’s my intention — to offer a philosophical approach to a homeschool review.

    Plus, it’ll be fun.

    Sneak peek coming soon!

    So 5PM PST is 1AM BST…how much would I miss out for not attending the sessions live but watching a replay (I’m assuming the replay will be available)?

      I don’t think the live aspect is all that important (unless you are in love with the chat box) — and YES there will be replays.

    I need some new layering tanks. Mine are all several years old and so thin. Could you give a link to the ones you got? Were they amazon basic tanks? Thanks!

    Also, how will you offer the Annual Review? I can’t remember what “Flourish” is… a magazine? A conference?

      Oops! Sorry there wasn’t a link to the tanks. Try this.

      Flourish will be two online live webcasts — sort of like Vibrant, but one session at a time rather than all on one day. There will be “homework” in between. 😉

        Thanks for the tank link!

        Oh, I like the sound of Flourish! Since I only get so much play money each month, I’m trying to plan ahead. Any thoughts of how much it will cost?

    We ordered a swim tee from Amazon Essentials and are very happy with it, as well.
