L. at Schola has a "portable schoolhouse" for their upcoming trip to New Zealand. She writes that "it's beautiful in an obsessive-compulsive kind of way, the girls' three 5" binders containing notebooks, sketchbooks, mini whiteboards, and drawing and writing supplies, and mine with its study guides, answer keys, CDs, and even more supplies."
As someone who has spent the past 30 years pining for T. Anthony's leather book travelling/carrying case (though it doesn't seem to be in the current stock list), how can I resist the idea of a portable schoolhouse?
Read the rest of L.'s entry for her thoughts on winnowing down the selection of books -- Charlotte Mason, Strunk & White, William Zinsser? -- and exploring NZ by VW bus.
