An opportunity to log in some of the thoughts and activities of our homeschooling family of eight. We love books and good food and aspire to a Christ-centered, multi-generational, agrarian life.

From a reprint of a wonderful old book (1850) called _How to be a Lady: Useful Hints on the Formation of Womanly Character_ by Harvey Newcomb.

Chapter II. Nature and Objects of Education "...'Education comprehends all that series of instruction and discipline which is intended to enlighten the understanding, correct the temper, and form the manners and habits of youth, and fit them for usefulness in their future stations;' all, in fact, that is necessary to make a man or a woman--a gentleman or a lady."
