What Can We Learn from the Pilgrims?

As we study the Pilgrims and the people involved in this "new beginning," the characters of the people, the flavor of their hopes and dreams, their ideas, their work ethic, and their humor come to light. They were hardworking, steadfast in their faith, and committed. When reading about the Pilgrims’ first winter, you can't help but feel the loss of so many loved ones on a personal level.

The resourcefulness and foresight of these religious outcasts helped lay some secure and strong foundations for our country. When they took the time and painstaking effort to write and bring to acceptance the Mayflower Compact, they unknowingly developed the long-lasting concept of freedoms and rights that we Americans enjoy and expect.

Enjoy this season of giving thanks and bringing the harvest home. There is so much to be thankful for, and as homeschoolers, we have even more to be thankful for—the opportunity to really know our children and walk the walk with them, sharing and caring and motivating and learning beside them.
