I Will Never Quite Understand Why…

October 12, 2010

(September 10, 2008)

after a day of things like this….

[The other kiddos helping Ria with a drafting project. She had to carefully measure and draw out our house for an outside class. There was a lot of great initiative and voluntary cooperation on this project even though they had to re-measure several times because of inconsistencies.]

and this…

[At that very same time, Kate and Frank set up their own tea party, complete with scrambled eggs.]

and other good things like a group Shakespeare reading with several other families and a very healthy mess in the living room from our school work this morning…

I still have a tendency to feel like we’re not doing enough.

    So common. Perhaps a healthy exercise is to compare this with a day when you feel that you *have* done enough, and analyse the differences. Are they significant?

    Well, this is an old post for me, but generally still true. I “feel good” when I have pretty successful “conventional” school day, but often find it hard to acknowledge that other sorts of solid learning days are also very worthwhile and important.
