Mater et Magistra is a great, Catholic homeschoolers "magazine". I loved reading it on the beach, especially Alice Gunther's article.
I hope to finish Maureen Whitman's For the Love of Literature on the beach as well, but my back has seized up. How sad I will be if I can't enjoy all the family time at the seaside. If you have a moment to lift a prayer, I'd appreciate it. :)
