Eloquent thought, Kat. It's hard to imagine our children being put through the mundane, everyday trudge of "traditional public" school- if only because we lived through it. I remember distinctly wanting more out of my schooling, wanting to be inspired, and wanting to be surrounded by inspiring people...so much so, that I sent myself away to boarding school. Certainly not an option for everyone- not in the very least. And not every child is as curious or as ready to leave their family at age 13. Could you imagine? So what are we to do?
Keep being who you are. I can only imagine that you and Ryan are creating an environment of curiosity, wonder, challenges, exposure to the new, the different- keep those wheels turning, you know? Your child learns so much from the energy and purpose his is exposed to on a daily basis from you and your family dynamic. It's an adventure, that's for sure, and certainly a journey.
