The Well Trained Mind

I just got this book yesterday. I've already read a third of it. I couldn't put it down.

I really, really wish someone had given me this book when my children were still babies. I would have done things differently.

The idea of a classical education appeals to me greatly. And I'm glad I got this book now instead of three weeks from now! I have time to play with my scheduling and selections for the next school year! I plan to make a few changes for sure, hopefully adding a few new ideas to the mix every few months or so.

I want the kids to really fall in love with learning. And I'm hoping this book will help me.

I want them to enjoy seeking knowledge. I want them to enjoy learning. I want it to be a lifelong lesson.

I'm going to have to purchase this book. I'll be adding it to my Amazon list, and putting it on my Christmas list!
