A Spectacular View

{After I took this shot, she turned to me and said it in awe, "Such a spectacular view, isn't it Mama?"}

"Education is an atmosphere, a discipline, and a life."

"Education is an atmosphere" doesn't mean that we should create an artificial environment for children, but that we use the opportunities in the environment he already lives in to educate him. Children learn from real things in the real world."

"Education is a discipline" means that we train a child to have good habits and self-control."

"Education is a life" means that education should apply to body, soul and spirit. The mind needs ideas of all kinds, so the child's curriculum should be varied and generous with many subjects included."

I have a deep love for Miss Charlotte, and I think her thoughts on education are grand__ they make me smile every time I read them. :)
