When you want to teach children to think, you begin by treating them seriously when they are little, giving them responsibilities, talking to them candidly, providing privacy and solitude for them, and making them readers and thinkers of significant thoughts from the beginning. That's if you want to teach them to think." ~ B. Russell
We really enjoy going on in-country business trips with Beloved. Personally, I can handle these conferences that are on the beach. Unfortunately, he tends to always be needed during these beach conferences some where in the middle of a snow blizzard. So, Melbourne was a real treat! Our stay wasn't long enough I can assure you.
No matter where we are though, I am sure the Children would rather I forget the book work and leave it all at home!
