Hello there! My name is Amanda, and I have embarked on my first official year of homeschooling my oldest daughter, who is six years old. I have three other children, whose ages range from newborn to four years old, which means that as I continue my study of the classical tradition I am frequently thinking through what these principles mean for the season of life I am in. Charlotte Mason wrote about preserving a “quiet growing time” in the first six years. As I am working my way through Richard Gamble’s book The Great Tradition, I find that even ancient philosophers wrote about ideas that are deeply impacting how I think about how I steward my toddlers’ time. Music seems deeply important, as does spending time outside, reading good stories, developing habits, and so much more. It seems as though I am learning something on this topic every day, and I am excited at the opportunity to discuss this more with others in this group!
