Children of Our Youth

I am still reading through the book Charlotte Mason Companion. I just picked it up tonight when wanting to post these pictures.

Here are a few quotes I enjoyed.....

"We don't measure a child's progress in the three "R's", but by the number of living and growing things he knows by look, name and habitat."

"We never know just where a child's talent lie, until we give him a variety of opportunities and a wide curriculum."

"It is well that we encourage children to develop their powers to imagine. Any child who spends the early years of his education with wonderful stories and bountiful play builds up fibrous brain tissue... The ability to imagine is an amusement and a delight in one's childhood and remains a pleasure in adulthood."

"Be sure that your children each day have:
*something or someone to love
*something to do
*something to think about"

Needless to say I was very encouraged when I shot these pictures :)

What a pleasure to see my children work together and play creatively!
Lydia made these arrows for them. They spent much of the early afternoon running about hiding in the tall grass. 

Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one's youth. Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them.. Psalm 127:4
