Hello Jenni,
I also love your blog. This is the second time in two days that someone has mentioned Charlotte Mason. A mom from Orange County, California emailed us yesterday. She homeschool's her children and "uses the Charlotte Mason method." Here is her blog if you want to connect:

I hope you will sign up for the Natural Teachers Network and share your blog about the benefits of nature and more about Charlotte Mason. Who knows, there may be other Charlotte Mason folks out there so you can create your own Group. Thanks for joining The Children & Nature Network. John
