One thought on “Monday – March 10th

  1. Hi Meridith,
    Love the flow of your days!! Two questions- first off, what books are you using for your Botany study?? We are doing one when the snow goes (which seems like never right now!). I think I saw at a different visit that you have used Shanleya’s Quest, but I was wondering which other books you may be using. Also, do you make your own three part cards?? Secondly, I see that your days are a nice patchwork of different areas of learning in the morning- do you plan certain studies for certain days or is it more of an organic thing where the choices are there and the children choose between them? Our days tend to have a rhythm but with differnt focuses each day- however, in this late winter time I am looking for a little boost to our daily routine!!
    Thank you for your beautiful blog and this one as well!!
