BACK TO HOME SCHOOL! and MORNING GLORIES
Pre-teen is starting home school today!
These are a few of the books we'll be using other than the "basics". The Brendan Voyage for Geography; Heroes for Young Readers - Missionaries; Whatever Happened to Penny Candy? - Economics; English Literature for Boys & Girls (H. E. Marshall, 1909); and Basic Cooking.
I, for the most part, follow the curriculum guide from Ambleside Online, which uses the Charlotte Mason method of home schooling. Charlotte Mason, who taught in the 1890's, is considered the "founder" of the modern home school movement. You can read more about her method HERE, or on Google.
Now, how about some Morning Glories!
This first one is the notorious noxious weed called Bindweed. It's as pretty as any Morning Glory, with just a hint of pale pink on them (washed out in this photo) - but don't let them grow in your garden!
The ever popular 'Heavenly Blue'.
This is from the Burpee 'Celestial Mix', which reseeded itself this year.Burpee 'Candy Pink'
'Yellow Trumpet' M.G. getting ready to open, from Diane's Seeds.
One can never have too many Morning Glories!
