I recently wrote about how our Spanish learning went dormant for a while.  Now that we're back at it, I'm leaning on the wisdom of Charlotte Mason--the founding mother of teaching--to help with lesson planning.  Her methods make teaching feel natural and (almost) effortless.

It wasn’t until Spanish became a part of our routine again, that I understood why it had left in the first place.  It’s been so long since then, that I don’t exactly remember making a decision to “stop doing Spanish.”  I can’t even remember if it faded from our life slowly, or stopped abruptly.  However it happened, for nearly a year we “quit Spanish.”
