A Mother’s Morning Basket (Back to School)

It’s been awhile since I shared what is in my personal Morning Basket. During the months leading up to a new school year, I like to gather books that prepare my heart and home for the year ahead. So most of my basket is filled with books that inspire our homeschool.

I’ve recently discovered Karen Glass who has amazing insight into understanding what a Charlotte Mason education is all about.

And our dear Aunt Sally, as I like to call her, just released Awaking Wonder!

(No she is not my Aunt, but she is a huge mentor of mine!)

We recently adopted a kitten, named Willow, who gets me up before the children. So I have started walking and listening to Sally’s podcast and reading during the early morning hours. I sit with my own basket of books with a cup of coffee or water to start my day. If Willow lets me sleep in, I try to squeeze in some afternoon mother culture during our quiet time after lunch.

Do you keep your own basket of books or handcrafts? I keep mine beside my knitting basket in the living room.

(Here are previous baskets from the Summer and Fall and Winter.)

My Back to School Morning Basket this year includes:

But….. usually the “morning” stack ends up beside my bed at night or read in the car on the go. 😉
