I love this quote that I found on Holy-Spirit-led Homeschooling.net. It is so true!
The last week as we've been trying to get back into the routine of things after spring break we have had to adjust things a bit because Nate worked ahead in a few of his books and has completed some early. So our school days do not exactly look the same as they did a few weeks ago.
At first I started to feel guilty about it. But then I reminded myself that it not about what workbooks he is using, or what amount of time we are spending on formal school time. It is about my son learning and growing as a human being and he is doing plenty of that.
Nate is expanding his creative and logical mind through reading and playing. He loves to read and does so every day with or without prompting. He is constantly creating something new with his Legos or making up a play or a story. He often comes up with "myths" to bust or experiments to do. With the special role of big brother to two developmentally delayed siblings he is constantly growing in his patience and compassion. He is a wonderful soul and never ceases to amazes me. I think he is a great kid and will be a great man someday.
Deuteronomy 6:6-9 And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes. And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.
