We can't make a child 'good.' But by developing the right habits, we can lay down paths that lead to a good life right in the physical substance of his brain.
We can't make him hear God's voice, but we can create paths in his mind that make a clear place for God to commune with him 'in the cool of the evening.'
We can't make a child smart, but we can make sure that his brain is fortified with pure, healthy blood, and that his mind is nourished with productive ideas.'
-CM vol 5 paraphrase pg 141-2
This is just a quote I've been thinking on.
On another note...
My friend Nancy has a new homeschool consulting venture I'd like to mention.
She's been a wonderful help and encouragement to us along this journey of ours.
I think the quote on her page is inspiring.
'We perceive that the education we are giving exceeds all that we intended or imagined.'
