I have been prereading for school during January and February. It’s been wonderful. Even more wonderful has been the commonplacing that has been coming out of it. So helpful for me! Below is from one of my children’s reads for this week.
What others believed were obstacles, [Theodore Roosevelt] considered adventures. What others thought of as setbacks, he viewed as challenges. Carry a Big Stick by George Grant pg 98
This is the kind of thinking I want my children to read. To struggle through challenge as an adventure – in their play, during hikes, doing a math lesson. I may hang this one on the wall!
