Saturday Quote...early....

Whether Reese's homeschool journey lasts through preschool, or elementary school, or beyond, this quote really captures what I hope he gets out of his education:

"Whatever an education is, it should make you a unique individual, not a conformist; it shoudl furnish you with an original spirit with which to tackle the big challenges; it should allow you to find values which will be your road map through life; it should make you spiritually rich, a person who loves whatever you are doing, wherever you are, whomever you are with; it should teach you what is important: how to live and how to die."
