Family Culture Formation


Even before we began homeschooling, learning all together as a family was what we planned to do because family culture formation was our priority, even over academics. Fast forward a few years and we are still learning all together for our Morning Time (or Calendar Class, as we call it), despite some serious sibling rivalry and constant interruptions to the “perfect plan”.

If it weren’t for groups like Your Morning Basket Moms, I would have been sorely tempted several times to abandon the project as a utopian fantasy. Hearing other families’ real-life experiences, however, has taught me that it is precisely these daily irritations with one another that we are called to rise above, and that our studies of truth, beauty, and goodness help us develop the virtues within ourselves so that we can do that and learn how to become “better together”.
