I came home pondering many things but mainly the subject of science
and what it looks like where we are at- with little ones.
It's nice to be writing this blog post now that it's been one week since the retreat began.
It's good think about what we have already done to enrich our life
and to implement some of the ideas gained, never sitting stagnant,
but moving forward at a steady (sometimes slow) pace.
I'm thankful for the vitality of this education/life we have chosen.

I dont need to worry that my child might not get everything he needs to know.
Not even I, as the teacher, can 'get' everything! I have the "indefatigable Teacher" with me each step of the way who will lead my chlid
to just the right things he needs for learning and growing.
I rest in this.
and to sharing one special thing we've done here at home since we got back!
More to come............
