Hi, Cindy! I’ve been listening to lots of your MP3’s lately and I just need to say thank you! You are such an encouragement to this weary homeschooling mom. I’ve been homeschooling since the beginning (I have a 10 yo and a 6yo, both girls). I’ve been feeling such disappointment in our schooling lately … we’re just going through the motions, and the girls aren’t excited about learning like I want them to be. I’m interested in your approach and would love to read/hear more about your take on Charlotte Mason.
So, here’s my question: I was looking at your past Talk-a-Latte studies page (http://www.talk-a-latte.com/paststudies.html) and noticed several different Charlotte Mason studies (“A Charlotte Mason Primer“, “Charlotte Mason for the 21st Century”, and “Our Charlotte Mason Virtual Seminar, Making the Charlotte Mason Approach Easy!” (this third one looks like it is listed twice, though with two different prices)). While I would love to get them all right now, the money just isn’t there LOL! I was wondering which one would be best to start with. I also just noticed that you have that third one available on your Ultimate Half Off Sale page (http://www.cindyrushton.com/HalfOffSale.html) … the first two aren’t listed, but could they be used as freebies based on the chart at the top of the page? If so, maybe I could go that route … but in that case, which of the first two would be best with the third one. Am I making any sense here?! I hope so LOL!
Thanks for all you do!
Thanks so much for your email. What an encouragement! I am so glad you have found us. I pray that I can help to encourage you through the years.
Before I answer you, I have been busy recording, revamping my websites, etc. So, I have a BIG NEED to revamp the sale page. 🙂 I hope to get to that very soon. Of course, ((shhhhhhh)) I am actually working behind the scenes to set up a totally new shopping cart for all of our products. I hope to unveil that very soon. It will be VERY easy to use and hopefully will have everything that we have available listed in one place. I have sooo many books, audios, and audio seminars. There is really no place that has them all listed at this time. I am sorry about that. It is easy to let those things back up on you when I do all that I am doing—working on two new sets today! 🙂
Ok, now to your question…
I would suggest purchasing the set for Making the Charlotte Mason Approach Easy and receiving the Charlotte Mason Primer set as your freebie. Those are both by me. Now, if you wanted the other set it is great too, you could choose it as your freebie. The reason I suggested the first two was because they are the ones that I have taught on Charlotte Mason’s Approach. You would have my audios, my ebook on teaching the CM Approach, and lots of wonderful free gifts to pull it all together. I think you would really get a lot of bang for your buck.
Hope this helps. If you have more questions, just drop me a note! I am happy to help!
With much love,
