I was reminded this week of the poem “Clouds and Waves” by Rabindranath Tagore who was the the first non-European to win the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1913. His poem which uses symbolism speaks about a mother and her child in reference to nature versus nurture, it was something I could relate to these past few days with my children and our homeschooling.
We had a fairly short week as we took Labor day off to spend with family and friends. This week had its ups and downs.
This week marked our first week of our new home school year, taking time to settle into our new routine after a long summer.
We are still working on our curriculum picks after reviewing and giving careful consideration to each child’s interest. Over the summer, I thought I was done with our choices; however there were a few young voices heard and I could not help but take a second look.
