I turned a page in my life today. As I write this, it’s the first day of school. I sent three kids off to school this morning, leaving me with only two little ones at home for six hours. This year, I don’t have a kindergartener, tying me to three daily bus schedules. Nor do I have a newborn, tying me to nap schedules and nursing times in between three bus schedules.
At some point during my six very quiet hours today, I realized how much the schedule of school is ingrained in my life. As a child, school was the rhythm of life. During college, I even planned my wedding around my school schedule. The few years between my own school and my kids’ school were filled by my husband’s school. By the time our youngest child graduates from college we’ll probably be attending back-to-school events for grandchildren.
I also realized how much I love learning. Whether it’s French literature, ballroom dancing, landscape design, nutrition, health, emergency preparedness, personal or spiritual growth; I love to learn about new things. I find curiosity and new questions keep the mind sharp and the senses engaged. Correlating new information with old information and revealed truth is exciting to me!
So please enjoy this issue on education. Whether you have school-age children or are looking for a new skill or hobby for yourself, you’ll find a topic of interest. Jump in!
All the best,
