Happy leap day! This week also marks the beginning of the season of Lent. Since I’ve started immersing myself in the liturgical year, I have enjoyed the church seasons so much more. As I wrote in my post about my morning reading routine, when I pass through the different parts of the church year, it feels like I’m meeting an old friend.
Here are some links for your (theoretical) downtime during the weekend!

If you’re needing some guidance and inspiration for how to implement Charlotte Mason’s principles in your own home, this course is for you!

Lent Calendars 2020 This is the beautiful calendar that we have used the last three years during Lent to mark down the days leading to Easter. I put it on the refrigerator and then we cross off a new day during our devotional time before breakfast. She also offers an Orthodox version as well!
The Jesus Storybook Bible Lent Guide If you’re looking for idea for observing the season of Lent with little ones, Sally Lloyd-Jones created a Lenten reading guide along with a printable paper reading chain to go along with The Jesus Storybook Bible!
Traditional Meals for the Frugal Family This cookbook looks amazing! I have a few of Shannon’s ebook cookbooks and all of her recipes, which are nutrient dense but very simple to make, have been a huge hit with my family. I’m also interested to see what kind of tips she offers for saving money on groceries as cooking more traditionally can be extremely expensive!

Messiah: Lenten Art Devotions This Wednesday marked the beginning of Lent and as I had such a positive response for the Advent Art Devotions I offered back in November, I thought I might do the same for this season as well! You can find them in the shop!
(2013) Land Envy. We lived in our old house, a condo, for 11 years, five of which we had at least one child living there as well. I really, really struggled with not having a yard in which they could play, especially after I dove into the world of Charlotte Mason.
