I want them to experience life in the fullest sense and it all begins with me. With my choices. What do I put in their path? What do I expose them to? These things can't be found in a box. They can't be found in one educational approach. It's a way of life that runs so much deeper than paper. To see true joy in learning all the while touching my child's heart- this is my goal each day. This is what I'm searching for and this is why I'm always looking for new resources. All of them effect the mind but few reach the soul.
