Lessons from Plumfield
' I want my boys to love Sunday, to find it a peaceful, pleasant day when they can rest from common study and play, yet enjoy quiet pleasures and learn, in simple ways, lessons more important than any other taught in school'
- Jo from 'Little Men' by Louisa May Alcott
Photograph of two of my boys, one at 20 the other 2 taken during a Sunday family picnic at the river last summer. Hoping to picnic more this year, especially on Sundays. Spring has arrived. The days are warm and sunny and it feels more like summer some days. It hasn't rained for weeks and the bushfire season has arrived early. We desperately need rain to fill our tanks and predict we will run out of water later this week. Your prayers would be appreciated. More lessons from Plumfield to follow. If you have never read 'Little Men' and are raising boys or are a homeschool parent you will be inspired by these 'lessons'. Even if you don't have boys you will enjoy these quotes which are all about the sweet influence of home.
Have a most blessed week!
