Guilt-Free Learning Notes: Week 2 (Sept 13)

2014-09-10 09.48.22

Welcome to Week 2 of Guilt-Free Learning Notes. It’s Saturday afternoon and I just remembered I was supposed to have this post up today. See, I’m keeping it real here. Last night we were to busy chasing the Aurora Borealis (you’ll have to read my learning notes for the full story) and this morning we were off to the farmer’s market. So here I am typing my notes while eating kettle chips and baguette slices with fresh cheese and peaches and apples, all the bounty of our market trip.

In case you missed the introduction last week, Guilt-Free Learning Notes is a low-stress linkup. We’re sharing our unpolished records of the real learning that’s happening in our families every week. It can be an accountability tool, a brain dump, a means for troubleshooting problems, and a useful record. I generally prefer to write up all my learning notes for the week in one massive post, but if you prefer to write several smaller posts, or even daily posts, do feel free to link more than one post.

Please post the link to the individual blog posts and not to your blog’s main page. And please do link back to this linkup.

Thank you all for joining in. I loved reading all the notes last week and look forward to this week’s notes.

    Oh wow, technology. It worked (have never done a link up before)

      Only one snag today! The widget has a function where you can decide when the linkup will open and I didn’t realize had a time as well as date (well, it makes sense, but I didn’t notice it) so it was set to open tonight and Dom noticed and I had to go in and reset it.

      So we’re doing pretty well.

      Thanks for linking up, Ellie.

    Thank you for setting this up, Melanie! When I’ve read your learning notes, I’ve always thought, that would be so helpful for me to do that! And what a fun record for our kids when they grow up.

      I’m so glad you’re joining in. It has been so very useful for me and I’m happy to inspire others to keep notes too. I’ve always hoped that my blog will be a record my kids can look back on when they’re older. It is fun to think of them reading these posts and remembering good times.
