We decided to homeschool because it allows us to live life as slowly as we’d like. We’ve chosen a Charlotte Mason-based curriculum that allows us to focus on great books, handicrafts (okay, knitting), and time outdoors.
Do you use a homeschool curriculum that’s neatly scheduled out for you over four or five days? It’s awesome, isn’t it? I love opening up my lesson book and seeing exactly what I need to accomplish over the day.

So this is a post about my printer, of […]
This post contains affiliate links. It’s Yarn Along Wednesday where I share what I’m knitting and what I’m reading. Last week I knit maybe two rows on my cardigan. Maybe. I’m at a confusing spot in the pattern with short rows and button holes and I’m supposed to be tracking my rows and my “surely I […]
When’s the last time I did a books and yarn post for the Small Things Yarn Along link up? It looks like i haven’t posted any knitting since … August 25. Yikes! I was inspired by my Making Christmas post from last year and set out to make all the gifts this year. Tell me […]
