As planning for the coming school year wraps up, I am reminded to keep my focus on what is truly important, and fellow homeschool bloggers often provide inspiration.
The first thing I read this morning was an excellent quote at this Cajun Homeschool Blog. Please go to her blog and read it today, whether you homeschool or not. It is a great reminder of what is important.
this blog post, where she writes her thoughts regarding this article on simplifying homeschooling. I too tend to be a "Martha" yet I see time and time again that my children learn much from the simple, ordinary things.
So often it's the grandiose plans that fail around here, but the simple things, built into our very life, are the occasions for true and deep learning. Daily prayer, daily reading times, nature walks, and even the time I leave unplanned for the kid's own creative play are often the times when life lessons, the most important lessons, are learned.
