- My Mom sent me a link to an article by Anthony Esolen and suggested that maybe we should have at least one from him each week. I laughed when I read that, because I had already bookmarked an Esolen article to share with you. Maybe we should make him a fixture! He writes frequently and consistently and can be found in various publications of high caliber, and justly so. If you’re not already familiar with his work, just make a point to look him up periodically and you will be rewarded with enrichment! And maybe we’ll just keep linking to him here, as per Auntie Leila’s suggestion.
- Here’s a post about how to set things up in the home so that your children are irresistibly drawn to learning.
- The comments on the past few posts have been even more informative and hilarious than usual. One or the other. Or both. Mom does need to get goats, if only temporarily, if only to up that ante like she does. Rosie might not be ready to cut out most of her diet yet, but if she’s not at least doing some stretches, we’ll want to know the reason why. And the world is full of a number of things, cabbages and kings and many, many interesting facts. Mom said that xylem and phloem (mentioned by dear Sybil) would have been number 6 on the list if she hadn’t gotten distracted! In Ann’s email to her children, in which she apologizes gently for “not having any sense that I had done a good job” teaching this to them, she links to the video below, with: “Enjoy, and then walk the rest of your lives really knowing how to name those clouds.” We love Ann.
