This day was an unschooling day. I just didn't have time for formal lessons. But I know that they learned so much more this day. What the soil smells and feels like. How a newborn baby feels in your hands. Grass under feet. The breeze through their hair as they swing. Catching ladybugs. Helping me cook. I am grateful to have my children near me. I am grateful for an active house. I am grateful for the screen door opening and closing with not much separation from the outdoors. I am grateful that God has a plan for my little family. And I am grateful for the love and joy and peace He desires to place in our hearts.
