Brain Dump, volume three bazillion

This book looks totally neat.  We probably need it.
 More elaborate review with zillions of pictures here.


************
I've been book shopping like a fiend for next school year.  We're going so Charlotte Mason, you guys.  I'm done buying books I wouldn't want to read myself. 

Have you seen this site: Mater Amibilis?

I'm obsessed.
*************
A friend from college got married.  His wife is greatness.  She was in town this weekend and went to Mass with us and hung out at the house before (just barely!) catching her flight back home.
 
She has more creativity in her pinky than I'll ever have in my entire self (see her shops here and here for proof).
*************
The water in our pool got up to 69 entire degrees today.  Hot tuuuuuuuuuub!  The kids have been swimming basically non-stop since yesterday afternoon.  Lunatics.
***************
Speaking of poor quality square pictures, the charger for my ipod isn't working.  Or the ipod just won't charge.  I don't know which, but basically it's just a matter of minutes before it runs out of batteries for the rest of eternity and I feel like I should have some sort of sobbing memorial service.  The whole thing is highly unfortunate.  Hasta luego, Instagram.

***************
This is our last week of school for the school year!  Katy finished the last of  her actual school work on Saturday morning because...well, Katy.  So we'll do some CAT testing and pop in at the dentist's office and everyone will do their things and then suuuuuuuuuuuuumertime, and the livin's eeeeeeeeeeeasy...

***************
Yesterday evening included dog vomit on the carpet and an enormous glass light fixture shattered on the kitchen floor.  No one was injured, but you didn't see that stuff on IG.  See charger problem above.  Anyway, just in case you thought it was all reading and swimming and skipping through tulips up in here, now you know the ugly truth.
***************
Among the piles of clean laundry, I discovered this cutie and was able to snap a pic before she sensed my presence and demanded a beverage.  
Mah beh beh.
************

Chombaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat....




WHEW.  Are we all caught up?  Life be cray, guys.

  3. We are going all Charlotte Mason next year, too. Will you share some of your favorite book selections? Would love to know what is getting you pumped for next year (while you simultaneously mentally check out from the current year...if you're like me)!

    1. Oh yeah, this year is totally dead to me. Which happens every. single. spring. I'd love to talk about favorite books! Do you have an age range in mind or just All Time Favorites?

    2. I have a kindergartener and 1st grader, so I am new at the whole shebang, but love Charlotte Mason. So....any suggestions, either for the current grade levels,,or as we look to the future. Also, I would be curious if you find it difficult t organize yourselves with the more general guidelines of CM and Mater Amabilis...a la "do nature study" ...well, that's great, but a little more guidance would help someone like me :)

  4. Nature anatomy looks great! Too many good books!

    We have used a lot of Mater Amabilis over the years- check out the facebook group - it's pretty active.

    https://m.facebook.com/groups/558192834220704?ref=bookmark

    The yahoo group MaterAmabilisTTF is great too, with lots of files and archives, but less active.

    There are many to help with any questions and we are collaborating on plans broken down by week to help each other out.

  5. Stop! I can't think about NEXT year while I'm still finishing up THIS year. A temptress, is what you are.

  6. OH MY ETSY!!!! I ADORE her stuff! I promise to stop shouting now, but I think I'm going to have a real problem with the adorableness of her books and such. And a onesie with Darcy's proposal on it?! Are you kidding me?! That is brilliant! The perfect thing for a baby to say to you, and you to the baby. Be still my heart...I just can't...Aaaack! So much awesome...not enough money!!!

  8. Where did that comment go? Just delete if it is a repeat! Welcome to the Charlotte Mason bandwagon - we've been here three years and loving it! We use a bit of MaterAmabilis and AmblesideOnline. Dangerously good booklists... so, so good. I think I may enjoy it more than the kids...
