Education is a gift that none can take away….

The most important gift you can give your children is your time. And spending quality time with them will give them an education not found in a school classroom. I loved talking with my boys, explaining how, and why things work, and loving how they soaked up knowledge like sponges. I passed on my love of reading to them, and together we explored many worlds beyond the walls of our home, becoming lost in the pages of books. We read every night and it was a favorite, special way to end the day. They learned so much from reading, and also by travelling to different parts of the world with us. Together as a family we enjoyed learning medieval history in England, visiting many castles, explored the pyramids of Egypt, marvelled in awe at nature on safari in Africa, and much much more. They retain all they learn ( sadly an ability that has diminished as I’ve aged) and have become extremely intelligent young men. Equally important is their manners, caring natures and knowing right from wrong, a totally different education than a scholarly one but necessary to succeed as a respected individual. I’ve said it before but I will say it again, I’m extremely proud of the young men that they have become…
” There are two educations. One should teach us how to make a living, and the other how to live.”
John Adams
