Friday Findings: Audible, Review of For the Children's Sake, and Plutarch....

Taking a walk down memory lane today, some of you long time readers may remember a poem I wrote back in 2012, Four Weeks and Four Decades.  I can't believe our baby is four years old this week!

I really appreciated Why We Fell In Love With Audio Books From Audible.   I recently went for the 30 day free Audible trial and received two credits.  One of which, I used on Anna Karenina so I can listen as well as read, depending on my mood and of course, time.  I'm still trying to decide which book to pick for the second credit.  I'm kind of doing a test run to see how it all works as I'm thinking Audible may be an option for Ruben in the future.

Last week, Heidi at Mt. Hope Chronicles reviewed For the Children's Sake by Susan Schaeffer Macaulay. Whether you're new to homeschooling or new to the Charlotte Mason method, For the Children's Sake is a good place to start.  I've read it twice and I'm sure I will do so again at some point.

Brush Up on Plutarch! with Nancy Kelly.  If you haven't tried Plutarch yet in your homeschool, I would highly encourage it.  Nancy has links at the bottom of her post with a wealth of information on how to go about it.  I also listened to her interview on A Delectable Education podcast and found it not only helpful, but very encouraging.

RileyAnn loves to bake and now that school's out, she's had more time to craft her creations...
