Life should be all living

We all want a balanced life but too often we fall into the habit of doing too much of one thing or another.  

At The Vine School we structure our day so that the students alternate (as much as possible) between right and left brain tasks, and then also play time and meal time so that when the school day is done the afternoon/evening is free for time with family and friends.  

Time to work and time to play and time to just be - Charlotte Mason captures all this in her quote.

CM Quote

Life should be all living, and not merely a tedious passage of time; not all doing or all feeling or all thinking - the strain would be too great - but, all living; that is to say, we should be in touch wherever we go, whatever we hear, whatever we see, with some manner of vital interest.” ...Charlotte Mason.
