learning to swim

Wow, life goes by really fast sometimes. All of a sudden Georgia and Maya taught themselves to swim, with only a few pointers and the right equipment (goggles! so cute on Maya) and ample opportunities to work on it. And they did it because it was fun, and they were ready for it, and they saw other little kids swimming and knew it could be done. They also had Billy to play with in the water in his gymnastic, energetic way- their leader of fun. And they seem so confident in the water and love to be at the pool. I feel like that's what learning is about- being ready to take charge of mastering a skill, having the right equipment, and having a social atmosphere where people that know things help those who don't yet in a service-oriented way.

Love this evolving learning. Maya, Georgia, and Billy were all so happy in Lake Michigan . . . the fish family. What I love most about home schooling---curiosity can be fed and kept alive. The wonder of creation is so much more available when there's time to be and explore without bells and change of focus. Time for me to look up Enki so I can support your efforts.
