Steyn on Johnny Mercer (part 2) -- posted by Momma

We so loved this two-part tribute to the music of Johnny Mercer. Unfortunately with the three older boys working, we hardly ever have the opportunity to study a subject all together anymore.

After listening to this, Will (22) got nostalgic and requested that we all do a novel read-aloud on the deck (like the good ol' days) now that the weather has cooled off. Everyone excitedly agreed.

It's times like these that, despite all the criticism I got for homeschooling, I know it was the right thing for our family. The older children have each told me they will never forget all the wonderful things we did and learned together, and they've never felt like they missed out on anything by not going to private or government schools.

Here's part 1 in case you missed it:
