I’m so sporadic in my blog reading. I always read Apartment Theraphy/Ohdeedoh and recently I’ve been reading design*sponge and Making It Lovely quite regularly too. One that I used to read all the time is Girl’s Gone Child by Rebecca Woolf. I hadn’t read it in awhile, but was reading it tonight and came across this quote:
So, no, my kids won’t attend the very best schools. Because we didn’t make the cut. Because we can’t afford to pay 25k a year for kindergarten. But that’s okay. Education is only a SMALL part of one’s learning. Opportunity is about SO much more. It’s about love and support and books at bedtime, it’s about intellectual conversations over dinner and weekend trips to art museums. It’s about exposing our kids to beautiful music, and poetry — star-gazing with them during meteor showers — hiking with them in the back-hills behind our homes. Volunteering with them in our communities. Motivating. Inspiring. Being there.
That is so true, and it’s a great reminder for someone like me, who worries about everything. Thanks Rebecca!
