Children should be encouraged to watch, patiently and quietly, until they learn something of the habits and history of bee, ant, wasp, spider, hairy caterpillar, dragon-fly, and whatever of larger growth comes in their way.
Home Education, Vol 1, II, Out-Of-Door Life For The Children
Give your child a single valuable idea, and you have done more for their education, than if you had laid upon his mind the burden of bushels of information.

“The world’s big and I want to have a good look at it before it get’s dark.”
“We all have need to be trained to see and to have our eyes opened before we can take in the joy that is meant for us in this beautiful life.”
Charlotte Mason ~ Volume 4: Ourselves
We all have need to be trained to see, and to have our eyes opened before we can take in the joy that is meant for us in this beautiful life.
Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.
