I have a teaching degree. I taught elementary school for 11 years, yet when I began homeschooling my girls, I couldn't do "school". The reasons for this are many and I won't go into them now, but sometime this year I found a blog with homeschooling ideas I love. This list was in a sidebar:
Six things to include in your child's day:
*beauty (art, nature, music)
*ideas to ponder & discuss
Now, that's living, learning and loving. My kind of school.
