Preparing Our Children for Life...

I have been taking any available opportunity to read a book by Catherine Levison, titled, "More Charlotte Mason Education." In one of the chapters, she discusses something that Charlotte Mason wrote regarding her thoughts on a Liberal Arts education. I have thought about this comment, and think that it is a wonderful motto for our upcoming school year that begins in September. It is this...

"We want to provide our children with an education that will qualify them for LIFE,
rather than just for earning a living."
The end result of a Charlotte Mason education is the children "find knowledge so delightful that it becomes a pursuit and source of happiness for a lifetime."
