Dollygirl's School Plans for this Week: two weeks to go!

(Cartoon by George du Maurier in Punch, 1871). The text reads: "Little Tommy (who has never been out of Whitechapel before). "Oh! Oh! Oh!"  Kind Lady. "What's the Matter, Tommy?"  Little Tommy. "Why, what a big Sky they've got 'ere, Miss!"

The White Mountains, chapter 9, "We fight a battle"
 "...we all enter on the inheritance of the heavens and the earth, the flowers of the field and the birds of the air.  These are things to which we have right, no one can take them from us; but, until we get as much as a nodding and naming acquaintance with the things of Nature, they are a cause rather of irritation and depression than of joy."  ~~ Charlotte Mason, Ourselves Book II, "Nature, Science, Art"
