April, I was wondering how you were doing, if you were still there, and I love to see you are full steam with AO and CM education for your children.
I've subscribed to your posts and comments to have you at my reader now.
I'm glad I thought about checking on you and seeing you are doing fine.

Hello April! I just stumbled upon your blog. Very cute. I share my life with 4 men! :) My husband and 3 boys. My oldest 2 are a tad younger than yours... (9 and 11). What was interesting was seeing that you did a Shakespeare's play, Julius Caesar! We did the same play this fall. It was really good and the boys enjoyed it. I try to do one play a year of Shakespeare's. Last spring, we went through Augustus Caesar's World by Genevieve Foster. This book caught the tail end of Julius Caesar's rule and the beginning of his nephew, Augustus/Octavius and his rule and reign. So having that background - it was interesting to get into Julius Caesar a bit more this fall. I did not know about these YouTube's... I will have to show my boys. I implement Charlotte Mason into our day, as well as Unit Studies and bits of the Principle Approach. I look forward to seeing more on how you implement Charlotte Mason's approach to education!
