North Carolina Homeschool Conference 2010

This past weekend we attended the N.C. Home Education conference. Lillian looks very scholarly, don't you think?

We all found some great things at the book fair. I spent $20 on four antique books. One novel, one children's reader, one field guide and one book of spiritual guidance. Pretty well rounded if I do say so myself.

We took lots of notes during the two workshops we attended. Both were about the Charlotte Mason method of teaching. You can learn more about it at Simply Charlotte Mason.

And of course, we had lots of fun!

Hello! Welcome to Mrs. Darcy's Dressing Room!
This blog is my place to share with you movie reviews, screen captures of beautiful period costumes and my historical sewing projects. I do not post here very often as this site takes second place to Standing in the Sunlight and both blogs always give way to faith, family and friends! Please use the guide below to navigate around the site and most of all enjoy your stay!
