In Which Clare Designs her own Classes

(and some for her young brother, too)

JH Fabre

She has also got a really nice Literature course going in which she reads books by Chesterton about famous folks, and then reads works by them. So she is reading GKC's book about George Bernard Shaw, and then reading GBS's plays (she's already read Pygmalion). Then she intends to read Chesterton's St Francis of Assisi. She is slowly watching her way through Chesterton: Apostle of Common Sense.

She's reading When Character was King, about Reagan, by Peggy Noonan. Not really a biography -- more like a personal retrospective.

There are a lot more books on her list.

She still runs an informal music apprenticeship for her two littlest brothers, and of course, sews, and practices violin, classical guitar, piano, and voice.

Tomorrow she is going to a Marian retreat; Marian and retreat, good; Life Teen element, not so good. But I hope the good side outweighs the not so good, anyway.

Her main problem seems to be finding enough time (and sometimes enough energy) to fit in everything she would like to do.
