It finally rained here !!!! HURRAY!!! Not that it's going to do a thing to help our poor "grass" (in quotation marks because our lawn is really clover and weeds now) or my now dead boxwood:( RIP boxwood - let's see if Lowes will exchange your sad carcass for a fresh new shrub:)
I am in the middle of Oliver De Mille's A Thomas Jefferson Education: Teaching a Generation of Leaders for the 21st Century. Fascinating stuff - and ridiculously motivating, for homeschoolers and public/private schoolers alike. He posits that the classics/mentor model of "education" is really the path to raising up folks who will know how to think as opposed to what/when to think. I'm not yet finished so if there's more to add I'll do so in another post; suffice it to say, I am yet again praying and thinking over how to improve what we're doing here at home. There are truly not enough hours in the day!
