It’s hard to believe my family just finished our THIRD year of Classical Conversations. With no words can I adequately articulate the blessing that Classical Conversations has been to the 5 Mosleys. Learning together and seeking to root all knowledge in Christ has stretched our hearts, minds and brought us much joy. At the conclusion of our second year of Classical Conversations, about this exact same time one year ago, I wrote two posts summarizing my experience as a Classical Conversations Parent and Classical Conversations Tutor. My experience as a parent and tutor were as opposite as night and day when comparing year 1 and year 2. I made an exorbitant amount of mistakes my first year that I intentionally avoided our second year. I followed that same path with year 3 as with year 2, and it was another wonderful year.
If you are a new Classical Conversations family, don’t make the same mistakes that I did. Read last year’s post, and I hope to keep you out of some gutters where I found myself my first year.
If you are venturing out as a new Classical Conversations tutor this next year, again, read last year’s post about lessons learned as a tutor year 1 vs. year 2. Thankfully, I wound down year 3 as a tutor in the same vein as year 1, and I am not on the burn out, melt down train as I was my first year.
FREE DOWNLOAD for you too! If you are starting Classical Conversations, did you know you can read and download Leigh Bortins’s book, “Echo in Celebration” for FREE?!?!? Download it here from Classical Conversations Bookstore. I recommend it to ANY parent starting out with homeschooling. If you are starting Classical Conversations, I also HIGHLY recommend that you read Leigh’s book The Core over the summer. This will start your school year off well and give you greater insight into the Classical Model of education.
