I found a rockin' quote by Socrates that I need to stencil on my wall-
"Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel."I need to keep that in mind! I know a lot of homeschool families are very concerned with the laws of their state, and are always making sure that they are fulfilling the tasks necessary to comply. Some homeschoolers are required to test annually. In Texas we are blessed by a generous guideline which pretty much states that homeschoolers must teach the Three R's and Civics. (Yikes?) I don't have to worry about a lot of things that other homeschoolers must. But I find myself so concerned with getting all the way through the book and teaching Spanish and practicing cursive that I forget that my goal is to teach my child how to learn, how to find the joy in learning, not just cram them full of answers with no rhyme or reason, to just be spewed out for the test.
