A Favorite Old Picture from (in a way) the Early Homeschooling Days

This was our backyard (I miss that yard!) two dwellings ago.

Anne-with-an-e (in the Cinderella gown) was about four and a half, and Betsy was almost two.

Although this was before our homeschooling days actually began, this picture (I love this picture) captures the essence of homeschooling in the early years -- what I wanted it to be, what I strove for, what it was at its best.

Wow, what an amazing yard! I really wish I had a space like that for my little one. The homeschooling I imagine for our family includes times spent in the outdoor beauty and we have none of that right now!

Thanks, Kortney!

Mandi, I do miss that yard! I hope that you are able to get to parks, and that one day you have lots of room to run just outside your back door! :)

Oh that's a fabulous yarden! I look back on my early days of mothering and homeschooling the tiny years with much fondness as well :-)
