When our children were young, I got up early in the morning - just a bit ahead of them. I needed the time to pray, to study the Word, and to regain my perspective. Every day was a lesson for *me* when we first started homeschooling. I didn't have a clue about what was involved in teaching a child, but I knew that it was something that I had to do.
began with the textbooks they had been using in
school, but it was easy to see that the learning from that method was
not learning that would last. It was "surface" learning - just enough to
do well on the tests and move on to the next part of the gauntlet of
the "school year." The sparkle in the eyes of my curious children had
vanished with the first days of kindergarten and "school," and it was
time to rekindle that fire.
And so it began, my commitment to bringing
awe and wonder back into learning--first for my children, and eventually
for yours. Thanks for your commitment to your children!
