Hey, I’m Dollie! Let Me Tell You About the Eggs…
Being inspired by a book, A Year With the Birds, I decided that our first year with the Charlotte Mason way would have us studying birds for a whole year. We put feeders up in our yard, my husband built birdhouses with the kids, and we journaled new birds that visited our feeders.
For the first time in my life, I was genuinely excited about nature and I wanted to embrace this new passion that homeschooling the Charlotte Mason way brought out in me.
Our lessons turned to nature that morning, as we bundled up with hot chocolate in our mugs, blankets, and chairs in tow as we made camp about 10 feet from the birdhouse. We sat there in complete silence as we watched Jenny Wren and Jeremy Wren (we named them after our favorite Wren in one of our bird books) build their nest. For the first time in our homeschooling, we took our education out of books and used the outdoors as our teacher. Our children were showing that the ideas they found in books were being played out by naming our wild pets.
It was in that moment that I fell in love with the Charlotte Mason way. The city girl was disappearing and turning into a naturalist. It is this memory that I devote my blog and product design to always include bird’s nest and eggs.
