The School of Wonder

naturalchildI enjoyed this post over at Story Warren, reminding me to use these glorious summer days to cultivate in myself and my children our infinite capacity for wonder.

“The world is fairly studded and strewn with pennies cast broadside by a generous hand. But- and this is the point- who gets excited by a mere penny? But if you cultivate a healthy poverty and simplicity, so that finding a penny will literally make your day, then, since the world is in fact planted in pennies, you have with your poverty bought a lifetime of days.”

–Annie Dillard, Pilgrim at Tinker Creek

2015-2016 Class Enrollment Open

enroll-now-stamp-on-webThere have been a few changes in the schedule and set-up for the classes at Creekside Learning next year. If you are interested in enrolling your kids in any classes and haven’t done so yet (even if you’ve e-mailed me your intentions), could you please fill out the form on the main page (click on “Creekside Learning” at the top and scroll down to the form) with your intentions? As part of participation in any of the classes on Mondays and Tuesdays, we also have a fall festival in October, a variety show in the spring, and some awesome adventures planned on Fridays twice a month.
I have a list of ways for committed parents to off-set some amount of the tuition costs by helping with particular projects/events or providing ongoing support in a variety of ways. E-mail me ( if this is something you’re interested in.
Mark your calendars for a Creekside Learning open house on the afternoon of Thursday, August 13th where you can see the setting, meet the teachers, and get any questions answered.
And feel free to spread the word to anyone you think might be interested!
