Welcome to The Charlotte Mason Way, a website devoted to helping today’s homeschool family learn how to implement this beloved method that will nurture your children into self educating minds that will last a life time.
I will never forget how much joy implementing the Charlotte Mason way into our homeschooling was for our home. We had only been homeschooling for half of a year, and I was struggling with the curriculum choice that I made based on what was working for others that I knew.
One thing lead me down the rabbit hole of this beautiful method, and our family has never looked for anything else.
I want you to understand what you can come to expect from The Charlotte Mason Way, and how to get the most out of my nearly 20 years of using this method to educate our children to be lovers of learning.

You may see a theme on my blog. That is to say, bird nests and eggs are throughout the website and on my Charlotte Mason product.
It was the study of birds that took this city girl that was afraid of everything that creeped, how no interest in much that nature provided and turned her into a nature-loving woman.
As a way to remember where it started for me, I add beauty through bird’s nest and eggs.
