End of Summer...
The end of summer break is upon us. Very soon we will be back to the daily go, go, go that encompasses our school day. Morning lessons will be a treat and the structure that we all need for our day, afternoon occupations will be a feast of ideals that we would not be exposed to if not for Charlotte Mason, and evening readings will be the thing that we need to work on and create better habits of doing. See, my family is not unlike most families these days. We all spend entirely too much time on social media, youtube, and just our phones in general. Mom needs to set the pace and put forth more of an effort in making sure that I am the example. Spending more time off of my phone & more time in books and making time for things that are truly life-giving to me. Not many people know this, but I absolutely love to quilt and to cross-stitch. I have not finished a quilt in ages. I have not made a cross-stitch project since Christmas. These are the handicrafts that help me to decompress and destress. I need time for them, and if I am going to make that time then my mindless scrolling of social media needs to take a back burner. I want to make memories with my kids and with my husband. I want to make useful things. I want to live...
So, the end of summer break is upon us. With the end of Summer is coming the beginning of Autumn. I have a feeling and a prayer that this Autumn is full of changes and will be a breath of air for those of us in the Commonplace household...

Wishing you all the best as you start back to lessons! Yes, we mothers DO set the tone in our homes and we have to lead by example... isn't that the hard part??
