In my days of nesting, some new art has gone up- adorning different places in our home and I have been inspired.
Inspired by the realization that the home can be a vehicle of communication.
I think of Charlotte Mason’s often quote definition for education:
I think of atmosphere.
I think of a gentle pulling on hearts from room to room as pieces of beauty are given a place to shine
Shelves filled with books overflow.
Special, tasteful momentos and pictures fill children’s rooms…
Promote family values.
I think of atmosphere that inspires children to high and noble thoughts. To love that which is excellent and lovely.
To develop a taste for what is good and true.
The home is a powerful place for growing children.
