Sending Kids Out

Apr 30, 2008 at 6:36 PM
Hi -

The girls have been homeschooling. One of the great side effects of that is that when it's a sparklingly beautiful, fantastic sunny, breezy beauty of a day like today, I can send them outside to play in it.

Call it PE. But when they are staring at the window, sighing about the pretty birds and sparklingly white clouds, I tell them to go play in it.
Then, when they come back in refreshed, they study better for it.

I think there is almost nothing as vital as enjoying beauty and immersing yourself in something beautiful once in a while. It certainly can't hurt their studies.

Here's what it looks like here right now...

My dad (Aka "grandpadre") took this picture.

    Wow! What a view. I want to move!!!

  2. desi Says:

    Come on down (out? up?)! It's my favorite place to live in the whole world. Wouldn't move if you paid me. Well, depends how much, I guess.

  3. Kat Says:

    Wow. I see what you mean now. I didn't think you were a crazy ole recluse for living in the middle of the woods... but now I know I was right. Sigh.

    I hadda come back to look at it again. We really have to get this teleportation problem licked.
