In all the craziness over hockey, it's easy to forget that we've been schooling all this time, as well. In fact, the kids have finished their respective grades, and it's time to either refresh or move on. It's a mixed bag because on the one hand, I'm a big fan of reviewing and solidifying material, but on the other, you realize how redundant it all is and question the utility of reviewing it.
Maybe a combination of both is a good way to go. Either way, the kids are doing a good job, and are less resistant and scornful of learning, at least some of the time. In fact, there are times they are downright motivated and inspired, which is cool to see. Still searching for that amazing interest that will capture their imaginations and hold their interest, but for some of us, that's a lifelong pursuit.
Life, after all, is a journey of discovery, right? Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to jvazqu1234 for the pic.
