People who live in the country know the value of fresh air very well,
and their children live out of doors,
with intervals within for sleeping and eating.~Charlotte Mason, Home Education, Vol 1, p.42
My kids spend a lot of time outside...playing, pretending and creating. We really need to work on the garden and do some spring cleaning this week, too, so we're cutting our school time down a bit and taking advantage of some spring fever to clean and garden.
