I love when I see her pegs getting information hung on them and her lighting up about it. Confused?
A few years ago I would have been too. (Okay, even last year, I would have struggled to understand the crazy talk about pegs!) Switching my mindset from my traditional, age-based classroom education to a Classical model of education has been harder than I expected.
Yesterday was a really dreadful homeschool day.
It involved yelling, crying,
and mentally putting together all the documents
to send her away to boarding school.
Thirty-seven minutes after walking into the kitchen and talking about the Wonders, Nan is still talking about the ancient world.
I am not exactly sure what she is talking about it. The multiple theories on how the Pharaoh's lighthouse worked is certainly something I have never considered. Then again, I don't think I ever heard of it until she and I memorized the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World two weeks ago for Classical Conversations.
I think she might just be excited about what she is learning. I think she might be searching out information to learn more herself. I think she might be getting an education that I never had.
We may not be needing all those
boarding school documents after all.
