Homeschool, at a glance

This is what you might see of our homeschooling routine this week, if you glance in my windows.
A mosaic, slathered in grace.

Education is a mosaic of beauty. The various coloured fragments are interrelated.
~Elizabeth Goudge, Linnets & Valerians, p68~

You say grace before meals.
All right.
But I say grace before the concert and the opera,
And I say grace before the play and pantomime,
And grace before I open a book,
And grace before sketching, painting,
Swimming, fencing, boxing, walking, playing, dancing
And grace before I dip the pen in the ink.
~G. K. Chesterton, “A Grace,” Collected Poetry~

  1. Bacon has always been right in saying that people like walkable communities. However, parents also like functioning schools and safe streets. The TODs provide a hybrid that one can observe people enjoying in Reston (for example). I also believe that the cost of transportation will become so high that people will be hard pressed to commute great distances.
