I love their dresses and smiles. I still think Daisy looks like Andie MacDowell.

What a couple of beauties! Their virtue shines in their countenances.

Hi Anna - such beautiful girls and such a lovely blog.

I've been meaning to recommend a book to you for Daisy which I read as a girl and which my young son loved also (a great read aloud). It's called The Far-Distant Oxus and it's about a group of English schoolchildren on summer holiday who go on a great adventure - a pony trek! It has a great back-story: it was written in the 1930's by two English school girls who loved Arthur Ramsome's books and modeled it on them:

It's out of print but I got it on Alibris and it's also sometimes available on Amazon used books. FYI, the children in the book are permitted an unusual level of autonomy, a la Swallows and Amazons :)

And a quick question: My homeschooler is ready for Advanced Math and I'm not sure I love Saxon's two year plan. May I ask what text your children use for Advanced Math? Thanks so much!

Mary, thanks for the recommendation, it sounds lovely!

We use Apex online courses for our older kids, and I'm sorry I don't know what the stand-alone textbook is. We have been super happy with Apex though.

Farrah, I see it too :)
