Over the weekend I had a friend, who not only knows us but visits my blog regularly, give me the best-est compliment. He said that it seems as if my kids never do any schoolwork! And yet, he knows them to be intelligent children who are always learning!
Why is this a compliment? Because that is what I am aiming for. If he can see that our children are learning and yet aren't following a school pattern as he understands school to be then I am happy.
It also makes me see that the children are starting to see their days from this perspective too.
Regardless of what is happening in the family there is learning going on. Also there are seasons of traditional study, and seasons of life happening. Learning is a balance of both.
