This summer is going to be interesting. All of DH's classes are on line. I have an online and an "in person" class. The children are all attending music camps here in the next couple of weeks. DD has a nice art group getting started today as well. I don't want the summer to get by us without doing some significant reading together. The boys and I are going to revisit Ivanhoe and maybe Captains Courageous. DD is enjoying Francine Rivers, but I want her to read Daniel Defoe's great story of brokenness and redemption, Robinson Crusoe. The boys and I have read this together in several forms over the years, but I really love these Windermere readers. I even ordered a second copy from the Amazon market place (for a song, may I add). DD and I can work through it together. I have some activities to go along with it, and we might make a notebooking project out of it as well.
This is not only a great literary work, it is a story of a man broken by his own willfulness. He loses everything and finally becomes a man God can reach. Robinson is the ultimate literary prodigal.
