There is a legend of sorts that “medieval cartographers, when they reached uncharted territory, would write ‘Here be dragons’ in the space corresponding to the unexplored regions. The idea was to warn users of the maps’ geographical limitations: beyond this point, you’re on your own.”

Question: Advice for spending hours outdoors when you live in suburbs?
Backyard gardening - create a haven for critters with indigenous plants - the plants and what they attract can provide hours of nature study opportunity as well as providing protection from the sun. Check with local nurseries to find trees, shrubs and flowers that are native to your area.

Question: Do you have any suggestions (or does Ambleside) for living books on the history of Math and its explorers? Any books with literary presentations of mathematical ideas.
Liz Cotrill's Living Books Library, has lots of suggestions for living math books. There is also a good CMI article: Living Math . . .Is it Possible? Finally, there is a Living Math resource website that was suggested on Simply Charlotte Mason and endorsed by a friend of mine who has a living books library in TN.
At the CME Retreat Blog we hope to share with you more information about a Charlotte Mason Education, the retreat, the speakers, the workshops and so much more!
