Our family has come to discover the Brave Writer lifestyle, I wish I could remember who, but I do not, but I know it was through Facebook that we first discovered the Brave Writer lifestyle and we, both the children and I have fallen in love with this way of learning. It is a process for me, as I love having a plan, but I've had to learn how to sometimes just simply live.
One of our favorite things now that we try to do at least once a week, sometimes more often, is Poetry Tea Time! We love it! I love reading to them and getting to eat at the same time. A lot of times, personally for our family, we love to have almost like a brunch. We all take turns reading around the table sometimes, or sometimes I just read. Recently, we read from Aesop's fables and they had a great time learning, but it's also a great memory we all have now as well. I even let them go to the store with me to help pick out what they want to have for tea time as to become a very big event we get excited for each week, sometimes so much we have it a couple times a week.
The great thing about this, is you can make Poetry Tea time cater to you and your family. If you don't like tea, no problem. As you can see, we like to have orange juice and I love my coffee. We don't have fancy tea cups really, so any cup will do.
I also have noticed, they still remember some of these stories so well maybe because of the environment created for that particular day of. reading and they loved that it was altogether.
It has taken some time for me to adjust to living and learning, rather than having a schedule, but I can tell everyone is happier this way and so when life happens, it's not such a stressful time as it used to be.

I think what I love most we have transitioned, is it still let's everyone be who they are while learning, and becomes more natural and interest led as well.
