Saturday Quote

OK! Spring Semester is under way, and so is my attempt at a weekly Saturday Quote. Here's a favorite poem I have printed & on the fridge. It's a poem by Piet Hein from his book Grooks, and I found this quote in a book I read called Learning At Home: A mother's guide to homeschooling by Marty Layne.

Put up in a place
where it's easy to see
the cryptic admonishment

When you feel how depressingly
slowly you climb,
it's well to remember that
Things Take Time.

When I feel like I'm not getting anywhere teaching Reese something in particular, it never fails that he'll come up at some random time & show me that, yes indeed, he DOES know what we've been working on!
