Speaking of baskets, I want to make one of these rectangular baskets. Next on my list.
I mentioned reading The Liberal Art of Grammar the other day, and because of that, I ended up hanging out for quite a while at the Arts of Liberty site, which is very lovely. It looks quite new, but it has more resources than it seems at first glance. I started reading through this Astronomy course by Michael Augros, who is also a TAC tutor, like Mr Nieto.
The past couple of years have been kind of a drought in our homeschool. In desperation we joined a charter just so my youngest two, AM and PG, would have some academic continuity while I basically went on hiatus. The charter though public-school-affiliated is still home-bound, so I wasn't on true hiatus -- I am responsible for daily guidance, grading etc, but we meet with a teacher monthly and we have been using the normal public school textbooks (though we don't have to, if we manage our own equivalent work, which I haven't bothered trying to plan). The charter is a great place, very homeschool-friendly, and the teacher is great too. I guess I would call their approach very compatible with subsidiarity.
