Our Charlotte Mason Home Daily Summer Routine

Going forward, my blog will be dedicated to Charlotte Mason homeschool, wildschooling, and related lifestyle topics. (I shared my first recipe post for gluten free flour earlier this week). We are a second generation homeschool family, my beautiful experience growing up as a homeschooler is what led me to fulfill my heart’s desire of homeschooling my own children. And, as this is my first dedicated Charlotte Mason lifestyle post for this blog, I would like to humbly thank the inspiring Leah Martin of mylittlerobins.com, for she is the reason I began on this life changing journey with Charlotte Mason. My heart is bursting with all I want to share, and I am beyond excited to be sharing our simple little daily summer routine!

I Can’t Believe It’s Not Wheat Gluten Free Flour Mix Recipe

After nearly 7 years of being gluten free, I finally took things into my own hands (haha) and played around with blends until I found what I was looking for. A flour blend that could actually be mistaken for regular wheat. There are good blends out there, but none that really gave me what I wanted. That legit, kind of earthy, stretchy and fluffy flavor of good old wheat. Many gluten free blends are sooo starchy and just, flavorless. Not to mention result in crumbly, dry or hard and gummy goods. GROSS. I have so missed the comforting flavor of stone ground wheat and that delicious sink your teeth through it texture. Also, I am way too busy at this point in my life to have multiple blends for different recipes and missed the convenience of having one container of flour ready to make whatever I felt like. I want one good blend I can keep in a giant container ready to go. I DO add extra xanthan gum when making yeast recipes but that’s an easy add in my mind. I will give you the small version of this blend but usually I triple or quadruple the recipe when I blend it so I can keep a good bit on hand. Without further chatter, here is the recipe.

Being Prepared for the Sacrifice of Motherhood

So I’ve struggled and prayed for days over whether to share this, honestly it can be a little terrifying to share things that I know might cause people to have powerful reactions, but I feel my heart being led to share, so here goes. I read a post in a mom group the other day, and it broke my heart into shards. The thread started by a mama pouring her heart out that she didn’t know how difficult it was going to be having kids, and that basically, she’s utterly miserable.

My heart BROKE. Broke for her, broke for her kids, a miserable mama does not make for a happy home for growing little ones. This mama was not prepared for the reality of motherhood. And her and her children are paying the price.
