Lately though, I've been yearning to go back and have a "real' education too. After all it's never too late, right?
And, as things have been coming together so well, I finally feel like I can spend some time on my own educational gaps: And trust me, there are too many to count.
Thankfully, because of the internet, we have options. In fact, we have so many options that trying to figure out where to start is often the very obstacle that keep us from getting started in the first place!
So, today, as I finish up the final plans for my children's next year school life, I decided to set aside just 30 minutes a day to join them on their reading journey, except I have opted to utilize something other than Ambleside (although just reading that list would expand your brain for sure). I wanted to get my hands on the reading list that existed before they 'wrecked' university learning. I think I have found two of the best compilations of classical western education out there. Not that there aren't better, but that these are easy to use.
My plan is to favorite both sites and for the next two weeks, read for a half an hour from each one every other day until I decide which one works best for me. That way when we start back to school, I'll be set to go: No excuses.
Here's the two sites (I am so thankful for people who care enough to share) that I was talking about just in case you want to join me on my quest for that 'do-over education' as well:
Maybe if you decide to really take a serious study, you'll want to add my history journal I created to keep track of all the neat stuff you learn:
