Morning and Tea Time with A Gentle Feast (2019-2020)

I’ve been following A Gentle Feast for quite some time and decided to try them this year. I purchased a few of their morning time packets to see which I could use with The Kind Kingdom European study.

We will blend Cycle 1 morning time packet from A Gentle Feast with The Kind Kingdom study of European history. We will need to swap a few things around and out but mostly stick to the guide. The Kind Kingdom covers a long time period so this works best for us. These packets are so beautiful and put together, it is already making my job easier in the mornings. Switching around a poem or artist wont really cause too much of trouble. 🙂 Here are my notes so far on who/what/when we will use each packet. I’m sure I’ll make changes as we go, but this is the overall plan! Note: I have a 5, 8, and 9 year old. We are mostly using Form I and testing the waters of Form II for the oldest.
