Tea-and-Craft Days

If you have a minute go and check out this article by Dawn at By Sun and Candlelight. It is a transcript from the speech she recently gave at a Real Learning conference. I found it very inspiring and would love to incorporate some of her ideas into our schedule this coming school year...

I think a weekly Tea and Craft time would be perfect to incorporate our Catholic Mosaic: Living the Liturgical Year With Children curricula into our schedule!

Also, It looks like I am going to have to breakdown and re-purchase Elizabeth Foss's book Real Learning. I am regretting selling it and would love to have it back on my bookshelf to use as a reference.

I am really starting to get excited about this school year!
