Imparting a classical education at home. Check out the Edwards Academy.

Psalm 78
. . . we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, his power, and the wonders he has done. .
so the next generation would know them . . . and they in turn would tell their children.
Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands.

Wiki Power

The idea of harnessing the labor of countless unknown users to create a massive encyclopedia was, obviously, brilliant. Project Gutenberg, the free electronic book site, pre-dates Wikipedia, but was also built on wiki power.

Now I (finally) discover Librivox, the wiki audiobook site. Project Gutenberg links to free audio recordings of many books, and many of those audiobooks are hosted by Librivox.

We've found several of our history texts (books by Henrietta Marshall and M. B. Synge) as well as plenty of other literature. Toby has listened to Thornton Burgess's "Burgess Animal Book for Children," and Sydney is listening to "A Little Princess," which is an old favorite of hers.

As you know, we're huge audiobook fans, so this is quite the find for us.
