With the intention of home schooling my children I have been doing a lot of reading lately on how children learn. All this reading has gotten me thinking about how in reality while our children are at home, whether they have attended school that day or not, they are being "home schooled" for all their hours with me. In effect their "schooling" starts from the day they are born.
So from day one I have been "organically" or naturally schooling Olivia and now Henry. All my interactions with them are teaching them something. I am their most influential teacher because I spend the most time with them. With that in mind I have been thinking hard on some things I have read lately, let me share with you what I have been thinking about:
"You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless until they rest in you." - St Augustine of Hippo
With all her searching and questions I want to point her always back to Christ as Lord. I want to show her how to find her answers in him.
Food for thought:
Deuteronomy 6:4-9 (NASB)
Psalm 119: 129-136
